Campus Community


Dear Redhawk Parents,

Thank you for visiting Benedictine University Mesa’s Parent Page! We’re proud to have the opportunity to serve you and your student in the pursuit of their educational and career goals.

At BenU, we offer a transformative and integrative education rooted in Catholic tradition and Benedictine hallmarks so that our students are prepared to make a lasting impact as purposeful and engaged citizens of their communities and the world.

Parents, family and support systems are an integral component of our students’ success. This website was designed with this purpose in mind so that you can have all the information you need to support your student in the best way possible.

The Benedictine hallmark of Stability is essential to the success of our students and the University. Stability is “commitment to the daily life of this place, its heritage and tradition.” It also means dedicating oneself to the task at hand. In creating stability, students can better focus on the things that are essential to their students’ achievement. Your support of their work, encouragement through difficulty and commitment to their development is critical. In these roles, you are creating stability for them as well.

I hope you find this website to be a good source of information to help you support your student. If you have questions or suggestions, please feel free to write to me directly.

Go Redhawks!
