The Alumni Association will be a dynamic, member-focused organization, driven by Franciscan values and directed towards supporting the social, intellectual, and spiritual needs of all present and future alumni of Cardinal Stritch University.

The Alumni Association will achieve this vision by:

• Promoting a strong relationship between alumni and the University
• Advancing the unique needs of alumni while supporting the University’s goals
• Developing an awareness of Cardinal Stritch University’s history, accomplishments, programs and offerings
• Promoting a sense of University pride among all graduates
• Providing the University with insight into the needs of the communities it serves


The Cardinal Stritch University Alumni Association is committed to bring all alumni closer to the University and one another through the Franciscan values of caring, compassion and peacemaking through fostering loyalty among its alumni, parents and friends, and establishing a philanthropic base in support of the University’s mission to transform lives through a value-centered education. This is accomplished by providing a communication link and activities for alumni, parents and friends, working hand in hand with development, through planning and implementing a comprehensive fundraising program for the University.

Alumni Board of Directors

The Alumni Board of Directors is the leadership body of the Alumni Association.

The Alumni Board represents a cross section of alumni in class year, geographic location, and occupation. It is composed of not fewer than 12 nor more than 20 directors (with five officer positions) as outlined in the Alumni Association bylaws.

Directors may serve on the board for two consecutive two-year terms.

The board meets as a full board five times a year (Jan., March, May, Aug., Oct.) on the third Wednesday of the month. Working committees of the board meet during the months opposite the full board meeting.
