Thanks for visiting Mansfield University. We’re located in north central Pennsylvania, a half hour below the New York State border. A public four-year liberal arts institution, Mansfield was founded in 1857 as Mansfield Classical Seminary. Today the university today enrolls 3,000 students in the arts, sciences and professional programs. At the core of all programs is our mission of “developing tomorrow’s leaders.

Living in the Mountaineers Community

In addition to our strong academic programs, we offer many opportunities outside the classroom for students to gain resume building experience in the community, the workplace and through our more than 100 groups and organizations. Our Honors Program and Mountaineer Leadership Program are just two examples of multi-year programs for qualified students that build up academic and leadership skills, often giving our graduates a solid advantage in the increasingly competitive career fields. And for fun, the Mansfield region offers year-around activities ranging from scenic hiking and biking to skiing, hunting, fishing and boating. The area is also alive with festivals, music, museums and malls.
