Benedictine University is more than just a place to educate the mind. At Benedictine, we believe in developing the whole person – academically, socially and spiritually. Benedictine is a melting pot of people, religions, faiths and philosophies. We believe that by bringing together people from a variety of backgrounds to live, work and play, we better prepare students to participate in an increasingly global society. At Benedictine, we value each individual, and we do all we can to ensure the success of every student personally and professionally. But while we respect the uniqueness of each person, we search for the commonality in all people. At Benedictine, we believe that by unlocking those things we share, we find our differences are quite small. At Benedictine, we are welcomers, learners and leaders. We are caretakers, competitors and explorers. We are believers, helpers, innovators and difference-makers.
