Alumni Association Benefits

Welcome to the Alumni Association...

As a member of the Alumni Association, you are among over 25,000 alumni representing a diverse cross-section of professionals throughout the world. You each possess the unique ties that bind you as a community steeped in the values, mission and vision of a Benedictine education. This education has opened the door to endless possibilities. The values you obtained while a student at SPC, IBC or BenU prepared you to make an important impact on this ever-changing world in which we live.

The Board of Directors of the Alumni Association along with the Office of Alumni Development work diligently to help support you as alumni while also ensuring the future of Benedictine University and its students. As such, we are excited to share a variety of benefits with our alumni to help each of you get the most out of your alumni experience and take advantage of special Benedictine rates on some daily life essentials, while also supporting the mission and vision of the Alumni Association.

Every institution of higher education depends on their alumni, as an integral part of the institution's history, to secure the future of their alma mater for generations to come. Benedictine University values this relationship and hopes that you will take advantage of our tiered benefit offerings, while also investing in the future of this University that will forever be your home.

Please be assured that we continually explore additional benefits to meet your changing needs and supplement current offerings.

 

"The word alumni is derived from the Latin verb alere, which means "to nourish." As alumni of Benedictine University, we strive to cherish the past and nourish the future."
