St. Francis College, a small liberal arts college in Brooklyn Heights with 2,200 full-time and 400 part-time students, has decided to form an institutional partnership with the Rubin Museum. Originally founded in 1859, St. Francis was the first private school established in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn.
We’re delighted that St. Francis will become our eighth university partner. This happy turn of events is the result of Rubin Museum educators working closely with faculty in the Philosophy and Religious Studies department. Over the past year, a number of professors have brought their students to the museum for multiple visits and guided tours.
We’re looking forward to welcoming the St. Francis Terriers to our partnership community!
