"We are ever grateful to the many alumni and friends of Benedictine University for their generous gifts in support of our students.  It is your contributions which allow us in part to provide financial assistance to our students in need, attract and retain a high quality faculty and staff, and make continuous improvements to our facilities and technology.  The stewardship of our alumni and friends allows us to carry on the tradition of our founding fathers, the Benedictine monks, who promoted a love of learning, community, and spirituality.  May God Bless you and your families."

Facilities and Student Life

Benedictine University has made significant investments in our facilities over the last few years, but we still need to do more. Advances in technology and lab facilities require updating of existing buildings and new facilities when too costly to modify existing structures

Mission Fund and BenU Fund

Two funding priorities that have a significant impact on today's students are the Mission Fund and BenU Fund. These funds provide help to students in need and flexibility in meeting program and student life funding.
