Welcome to Benedictine University!

Benedictine University's commitment to academic excellence traces its roots to St. Benedict, a young monk in the sixth century. Over the centuries, the involvement of the Benedictines in education expanded to college and universities.

Today, the mission and vision of Benedictine University continue to reflect our Catholic and Benedictine traditions, providing the University community with a sense of connection with the past and direction for the future. Benedictine University continues to reevaluate and implement strategies that ensure its graduates — as they reach out and become part of an ever-changing world — are fully prepared for roles of leadership and social responsibility.
