The icon and the treatment of “Cardinal Stritch University” make an important statement about the University’s place in the ranks of American educational institutions.
The rose window icon is based upon a rose window found at the Basilica of St. Clare in Assisi, Italy. It was chosen to honor the University’s rich past and the legacy of the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi.
It conveys the historical and religious context of the institution in an understated, yet confident, manner.
The typeface was chosen to reflect the tradition, excellence and innovation of Cardinal Stritch University.
