Duquesne University Sponsorship Statement
Duquesne University reflects the mission of our founders, the Congregation of the Holy Spirit (the Spiritans), missionaries committed to education, service, social justice and interreligious understanding on six continents including Africa. Duquesne’s ongoing outreach to Africa includes partnerships, research, community engagement opportunities and the presence of African students, faculty and priests on our Pittsburgh campus. The university’s sponsorship of the Tropical Forest Congo exhibit is a natural extension of this engagement.
