Transylvania University

Founded in 1780, Transylvania is the sixteenth oldest college in the United States and is consistently ranked among the nation’s best liberal arts colleges for both quality and value.  Transylvania provides a challenging but supportive environment where faculty members engage and encourage students in their intellectual, personal, and professional development.  Unlike many outstanding liberal arts colleges that are located in small towns, Transylvania is located in the heart of Lexington, Kentucky, a dynamic, creative city with 300,000 residents and 30,000 college students.  This ideal location allows students to walk to internships, volunteer experiences, cultural events, and great restaurants and music venues.

Seamus Carey became Transylvania University’s 26th president on July 1, 2014.

At Manhattan, he also served on the faculty senate, as chair of the School of Arts curriculum committee, and as director of the university’s Center for Professional Ethics.  The author of numerous articles and books, his scholarship focuses on the intersection of philosophy, parenting, and family life.
