About Us

Recognizing that sustainable growth and prosperity starts with providing resources to educate the minds of its masses, the City of Mesa embarked on a journey to attract a distinguished university that would help revitalize its downtown area while giving the city and area residents something it lacked.

As part of Mesa’s HEAT Initiative, Benedictine University, based in Lisle, Ill., just outside of Chicago, was invited to be the first institution of higher education to locate a campus in Mesa.

Benedictine University at Mesa is a branch campus of Benedictine University, which is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (www.ncahlc.org) and licensed by the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education to operate an accredited, degree-granting institution of higher learning in Arizona.

Forbes magazine named Benedictine among “America’s Top Colleges” for the fourth consecutive year in 2014. Education and technology blog edcetera named Benedictine University at Mesa among 10 universities in the nation on the cutting edge of tech for 2013.

Benedictine University at Mesa is a Roman Catholic university that offers traditional undergraduate and adult and graduate degrees in a diverse and caring environment. A core Benedictine value is living life in balance. In support of this ideal, Benedictine offers a burgeoning intercollegiate sports program, student groups, fitness facility access and other services toward fulfilling our promise to provide students an affordable and attainable values-based education that builds better learners, leaders and world citizens.
