Location is Everything

Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to Pennsylvania’s fourth-largest city for seven miles of beaches, tax-free shopping, minor league sports and a vibrant entertainment and cultural scene. Gannon’s urban campus is at the center of it. Only a two-hour drive from Cleveland, Buffalo and Pittsburgh, Erie has small-town friendliness and big-city attractions.

Message from the President of Gannon University – USA

“Gannon’s Vision 2020 comprehensive campaign culminated in 2016 with of over $67 million raised to support a spectrum of critical needs; in particular scholarship funds to ensure student access to the Gannon learning experience and academic and support programs to enhance the quality of that learning and life experience. Over $135 million in major capital improvements have been completed during the past decade in Erie and Ruskin including construction and transformation of 7 academic buildings, the Nash Library, and new residential North Hall and Wellness Center and Fieldhouse. These facility and program enhancements have transformed the campus and allowed the community to make great strides to bolster efforts to support student learning and achievement. The faculty and staff focus on engagement, retention and student success has resulted in a 5% increase in freshmen student retention rates in just the past few years. Gannon’s commitment to access and affordability to a growing diverse student population is reflected in the additional academic, personal and career advising and resources offered to first-generation, low income and disabled students bolstered by the burgeoning success in extramural funding since the establishment of the Office of Grants and Sponsored Projects as well as the Student Success Center. The faculty and staff have secured millions of dollars in annual funding including Gannon’s first successful National Science Foundation grants.”
