Le Moyne College, named after Simon Le Moyne, is a private Jesuit college in Syracuse, New York enrolling over 3,500 undergraduate and graduate students. Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1946, Le Moyne is the first Jesuit college to be founded as a co-educational institution. The College is the second-youngest of the twenty-eight Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, and is the only comprehensive Catholic college in Central New York.
Le Moyne College's 160-acre (0.65 km2) campus is located in a residential neighborhood of the Syracuse suburb of DeWitt, but also borders the Salt Springs neighborhood of Syracuse, facilitating partnerships with the City of Syracuse and regional businesses and organizations.
Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D. is the 13th President of Le Moyne College and first permanent lay leader of the college, a position he accepted after a 24-year career at the University of Dayton.
