Our Cabrini family came together to honor and celebrate at the Cabrini Legacy Celebration, the ceremonial closing of Cabrini University.

Current and former Cabrini faculty, staff, alumni, friends of the University/community partners gathered as a community to pay tribute to Cabrini's six decades of providing an Education of the Heart.

This commemorative event was held on Sunday, May 19, 2024 at 4:30pm on Cabrini’s campus at the Nerney Field House at the Dixon Center. It was the final public event to be held at Cabrini University.

This event included:

  • An academic procession with our alumni carrying flags representing each year of Cabrini’s existence
  • A special ceremony including:
    • Videos and stories reflecting on Cabrini history and legacy
    • Recognition of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, various Cabrini faculty, staff, and alumni
    • A symbolic passing of the Cabrini legacy to Villanova University
  • Reception to follow immediately
  • A special keepsake to take with you to keep the Cabrini mission alive
  • An opportunity to visit campus, see old friends and new, and remember your special time here

We are so grateful to have welcomed you to celebrate our shared history and to build a bright future together under the stewardship of Villanova University.
