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.
Imagine what you could become from the experiences you create. Imagine all the learning that comes from outside a classroom. What if you discovered your path through the experiences in the things you do?
Through the Eagle Engagement initiative, we will help you to grow richer in spirit and larger in impact through opportunities that turn personal interest into personal achievement.
This initiative forms the basis of the University’s Student Affairs programming and services. It provides students a campus living and learning experience reflective of our Benedictine values: inclusive, service-focused, experience-driven and rich in the development of relationships that students will share throughout their time at the University to prepare them to make a lasting impact as purposeful and engaged citizens of their communities and the world.
