Greetings from our Provost

Brother Daniel P. Wisniewski, O.S.F.S., Ph.D.

I'm so pleased to welcome you to DeSales University, where I've been blessed to be a part of the DeSales family for more than 20 years. It's a place where we embrace the wisdom of our patron saint and encourage everyone to “be who they are and be that well.”

As Provost, I oversee all of DeSales University's academic programs, departments, and faculty, including the Academic Affairs and Academic Support offices, the Registrar's Office, Trexler Library, and more.

DeSales is rich with academic gravitas and unwavering support for our students, faculty, and staff.  As you navigate your own DeSales journey, I encourage you to utilize all of the resources available to you. 

Meet Brother Dan

The Dean’s List

Our University patron, Saint Francis de Sales, had such regard for learning that he considered education to be the “eighth sacrament.”  With that same esteem, the president, administration, and faculty of the University congratulate these men and women on their outstanding achievement.
