College of Liberal Arts

Advancing the liberal arts experience of students is a key component of a Benedictine University education. The College of Liberal Arts provides this to undergraduates through its major and minor programs, interdisciplinary offerings, support for the core curriculum and to adult undergraduate and graduate students.

The College of Science includes the departments of Biology, Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Physics and Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. At the graduate level, the College offers a master's degree in clinical exercise physiology.

Daniel L. Goodwin College of Business

One of Benedictine University's great strengths is its integration of liberal with professional learning. The Daniel L. Goodwin College of Business offers 10 undergraduate degree programs, three master's programs, several graduate certificates and a doctoral program in Organization Development. Programs are designed to meet the needs of traditional-age students as well as working adults, with courses offered in semester, quarter, accelerated and cohort formats.

College of Education and Health Services

Quality teacher education places great emphasis on a strong liberal arts foundation. The interactive relationship among liberal arts, disciplinary area of study, professional education and communication skills uniquely prepares Benedictine University students for a career in teaching. Benedictine University has provided accredited teacher education for 40 years. The college is also home to undergraduate programs in Health Administration, Nursing and Nutrition and the graduate Public Health and Nutrition programs.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Date: April 19

Time: All Day

Campus: Lisle

Location: Lisle Campus

Event Sponsor: BenU PEACE Team and Prevention Peer Educators

Contact: Bernadette Ramsden    bramsden@ben.edu

Event Description:

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Since April, 2018, Benedictine University has held It’s On Us Week of Action the 3rd week in April to provide opportunities to move from awareness to action. This year, we will be providing several opportunities to take action this week (April 19-23rd).

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®

This International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender-Violence is an opportunity for men on campus to show solidarity with survivors and speak out against violence in our community. This year the walk will be virtual. Students living on campus can pick up shoes outside Krasa Student Center Suite 175 Monday-Thursday from 12:20-1:20PM. If you are not on campus, you can borrow shoes from a family member or friend, or make a sign to hold during your walk. Show your walk with photos and Map My Walk. Tag us on Instagram @benupeaceteam or email them to Dr. Steven Burgess, Chair of the Engaging Men sub-committee of the PEACE Team at sburgess@ben.edu.

 

Violence Prevention Messaging Contest

One of the most powerful ways that we can engage in violence prevention is through bystander intervention. We are calling on all of our creative students to share a drawing, photograph, painting, poem, or any other expression of art to show how they can intervene before, during or after violence occurs to prevent violence in our community.

 

Campus Climate Survey

The Campus Climate Survey is a way for Universities to gather information about what our campus culture is like and whether students are able to access the resources and programs available to them. We have conducted the Campus Climate Survey on Gender-Based Violence since Spring 2018 and use this information to improve the services that we offer both for gender-based violence prevention and response.  This year the survey was created in collaboration with the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force.

 

Our Week of Action events will conclude with an event on Saturday, April 24th at 3PM CST with the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago and Congressman Bill Foster to raise awareness about the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), myths and facts about sexual violence, and how our community can advocate for laws that prevent violence and support survivors in our community. The event can be viewed on Congressman Foster’s Facebook page here.
