Our Franciscan Values

Cardinal Stritch University, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi and rooted in the liberal arts tradition, transforms lives and communities through servant leadership, learning and service. The University is guided by the Catholic, Franciscan values of creating a caring community, peacemaking, showing compassion and reverencing creation as we embrace and cultivate the diversity of all of God’s creation. Our founding and sponsoring Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi gifted the Franciscan values to Cardinal Stritch University through their leadership, work and example throughout the generations.
