Educational programs that are just as diverse as our students

Stritch is an excellent choice for studying business, education, liberal arts, leadership, nursing and the sciences.

Students with diverse faith and cultural backgrounds embrace and live our core Franciscan values of creating a caring community, showing compassion, reverencing creation and making peace. On campus, students cheer on our athletic teams, the Stritch Wolves, as they compete in 15 men's and women's sports. Students from all majors are engaged in artistic opportunities and participate in gallery exhibitions, theater performances and music concerts.
