Benedictine University is dedicated to the education of undergraduate and graduate students from diverse ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds. As an academic community committed to liberal arts and professional education distinguished and guided by our Roman Catholic tradition and Benedictine heritage, we prepare our students for a lifetime as active, informed and responsible citizens and leaders in the world community.
Benedictine University is grounded in the spirit of the founders who based their lives and work on St. Benedict's Rule for Monks, written in the early sixth century. Benedictine University builds its educational life and efforts on the same values which Benedictine men and women espouse:
a commitment to academic excellence
a search for God by oneself and with others
a tradition of hospitality
an emphasis on a life lived in balance
a dedication to responsible stewardship of the earth
an appreciation for living and working in community
UPDATE: The Library is no longer experiencing a technical problem with its
