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 Academic and Career Enrichment Center (ACE) supports students’ academic, personal and professional development through services to maximize their academic success, enhance their student experience and better prepare them for further study or the workforce. ACE engages current students and alumni by providing support for academic and professional work so they are equipped to achieve their goals, implement life plans and become self-directed learners. Through individual coaching, creative programming and collaboration with students, alumni, faculty and employers, ACE empowers students to be active participants in their own personal, academic and career development.
