About Cardinal Stritch University
The Stritch story
We all have a story, and every day creates a new page. Stritch's story is integrated with more than 38,000 others - the stories of our alumni who are positively impacting the communities in which they live, work, serve and lead.
And it all started with the story of one man from Italy - St. Francis of Assisi.
Celebrating 85 years
July 17, 2022, marked the 85th anniversary of the founding of Cardinal Stritch University by the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi. “It is my privilege to serve and help build upon the rich legacy that began when Stritch was founded in 1937,” said Stritch President Dr. Dan Scholz.
Cardinal Stritch University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Other accreditations apply to specific programs and locations.
