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 Office of University Planning and Research (UPR) provides senior administrators and the Benedictine community with data used in managing the University, strategic planning and decision-making. As a service office, UPR coordinates reporting to both internal and external agencies and seeks to broaden the general knowledge of the University and its activities.
UPR is the provider of timely, high-quality information and analysis for informed decision-making.
