Why Stritch?

"I have never been a part of an educational community that was as dedicated to the success of students as Stritch. There is something special here. The four Franciscan Values that appear in our mission statement are not mere words on paper; they are deeply ingrained in each of us and truly frame how we live and work. We work closely together – across departments and areas of the university – to provide the best-possible environment for the education and welfare of our students. Every day brings new challenges, and every day I look forward to tackling those challenges with a remarkable group of dedicated colleagues. "
