Community Initiatives

At Cardinal Stritch University, the community is our classroom.


Just as we partner with students in the classroom, Stritch also partners with the community in a variety of ways.

Our thriving visual and performing arts programs invite the community to our campus for thought-provoking and stimulating exhibitions and music and theater performances. The expertise of our faculty is at the disposal of groups and organizations who seek guest speakers to enliven an upcoming meeting.  And in the best Franciscan tradition, we are called to the city to meet the urban challenges of the 21st century.

We serve students of every age, from cutting edge programming in literacy development for children to leadership development for adults or offering expertise in ministry formation for lay Catholics.

Our work extends well beyond the borders of any classroom or campus, and we celebrate service as an essential element. We invite you to join us.
