Mount St. Mary's University, also known as The Mount, is a private, liberal arts, Catholic university in the Catoctin Mountains near Emmitsburg, Maryland. It was founded by French émigré Father John DuBois (Père Jean Dubois) in 1808 and is the oldest independent Catholic college in the United States. (It is the second oldest Catholic college in the United States, after Georgetown.) The school became co-educational in 1972. In addition to its undergraduate school, the university includes five graduate programs, including a seminary. Dr. Thomas H. Powell is the University's president.

As of 2012[update] the seminary's rector and president was the former vicar general of the Catholic Diocese of Peoria, Illinois, Monsignor Steven P. Rohlfs; his immediate predecessor was Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades. The chancellor of the seminary was the former Archbishop William Henry Keeler.
