Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
The BenU Teach-In on Social Justice is where scholarship, activism, civic engagement, and engaged learning meet.
Look back at our 2019 campus-wide, full-day program including plenaries, workshops, panels, discussion groups, performances, and an activism fair.
