The Franciscan Center at Stritch fosters the study of Sts. Francis and Clare and promotes
research on the history, spirituality and values of the Franciscan tradition.
It serves the University and wider community, as well as the
Franciscan family, through scholarships, dialogue and activities that
bring Franciscan ideals and values to bear on contemporary issues and problems,
both local and global.
The Franciscan Center serves as a conference site for pursuing
spiritual and educational enrichment about St. Francis, St. Clare, Franciscan
men and women, and the Franciscan tradition.
It offers credit and non-credit courses, in conjunction
with the Department of Religious Studies; workshops and seminars;
lectures and conferences on a host of issues from the Franciscan perspective.
