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 tradition of Science at Benedictine is really the story of generations of men and women with a passion for teaching and research, who delight in sharing not only ideas, but also their lives with their students. For nearly a century, the Science faculty at Benedictine University has prepared its students to lead lives of meaning, purpose and distinction. Empowered by a value-centered Benedictine science education that emphasizes hands-on scientific exploration and discovery, our alumni have gone on to realize their professional potential, build stellar careers and bring their talents to bear on our society's most pressing needs. I encourage you to explore our website or to visit us in person to learn more about our excellent faculty, coursework, research, facilities, and student advising programs.
