History

St. John Fisher College was founded as a men's college in 1948 by the Basilian Fathers and with the aid of Father James E. Kearney, then the Bishop of Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester. In 1968, the College became independent from the Catholic Church, and coeducational in 1971. Recently, the university has experienced a large increase in on-campus housing, student enrollment, new facilities, and the establishment of both the Wegmans School of Nursing, and The Wegmans School of Pharmacy. In 2008, the New York State budget provided St. John Fisher College with a $2 million grant to explore the feasibility of opening a law school in downtown Rochester.[1]
