Cardinal Stritch University is an independent Franciscan
Catholic institution of higher education sponsored by the Sisters of
St. Francis of Assisi.
The University, rooted in the liberal arts,
provides graduate and undergraduate programs to prepare students for
life and for professional careers. The University assists women and men in pursuing lifelong learning.
It provides both traditional and nontraditional approaches to meet the
educational needs of a diverse student body. The University strives to
be a caring community. Its faculty and staff regard superior instruction
and personal attention to each student as keys to quality education. In
addition, faculty members model and promote meaningful integration of
theory and practice.
Faculty, staff, administration and trustees cooperate actively to
anticipate and address the emerging needs of students, the Stritch
community and society. The vitality of educational life is enhanced by
the commitment of the University to programs of direct service to people
who might not otherwise be served.
In keeping with Franciscan values and guided by the Judaeo-Christian
tradition, the University fosters the moral, spiritual, intellectual,
cultural, emotional, social and physical development of each person.
Finally, the University promotes the development of men and women who
are committed to religious principles, who possess moral and aesthetic
values, and who take their places as responsible persons, serving the
local and global communities.
