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 Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development helps students reach their full potential by getting involved on campus and pursuing leadership opportunities. We encourage students to get involved in extra-curricular programs, activities or student clubs of interest to them. Doing so helps students grow personally and professionally and builds community.
