Fundraising Campaign 150 Years of USJ
“USJ, Aspire for More!”

In 2025, Saint Joseph University of Beirut will celebrate a momentous milestone: 150 years of dedication to education, cultural diversity and innovation. Over the course of these 150 remarkable years, our institution has been a beacon of cutting-edge education, enlightenment and progress.

Today, we stand at the cusp of a new era, driven by our collective determination to reach greater heights. Under the slogan “USJ, Aspire for More”, today we are launching a 10-year fundraising campaign, with the aim of raising $150 million to ensure USJ’s longevity.

Magis – a Latin adverb – means more. The term “Magis” is a pillar of the Jesuit philosophy and is rooted in the values of our University. “USJ, Aspire for More” is more than just a slogan; it’s a principle that inspires us to always aspire for more, to strive for excellence in everything we do. It’s a recognition of USJ’s unwavering commitment to continuous improvement, innovation and the quest for solutions to the most pressing challenges of our time.

By supporting this campaign, you are contributing to a legacy of excellence that will resonate for generations to come.
Let us shape a brighter tomorrow for Saint Joseph University of Beirut and our students. Together, let’s surpass the horizon of possibilities and inspire all to “Aspire for More”.
