Caring for our community through faith, learning and innovation.
Our Franciscan values of creating a caring community, making peace, reverencing all of creation, and showing compassion drive our actions. Our commitment is evident in campus dialogues and strategic thinking, curricular and co-curricular development, community partner relationships and in our fervent desire to instill the power of servant leadership into every Stritch graduate. We speak out about the issues of the day and are civically engaged both locally and globally.
