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.
Finding a college that’s right for you can be confusing and bring up more questions than answers. To help make the process easier, UPR has provided three different resources to answer questions you may have on some of the terms or data found on Benedictine University’s website.
Institutional Research Glossary: In its capacity as the official reporting office for the University, Institutional Research has compiled a glossary of terms. The purpose of the glossary is to help everyone better understand the “college speak” that is often associated with higher education as well as understand data within its defined terms.
Data Requests: UPR collects and makes available a variety of data about Benedictine University.
Qualtrics Survey Tool: Accounts for the Qualtrics Survey Tool, software that makes sophisticated research simple, can be created for faculty, staff and students authorized by their instructors.
