Stritch celebrates 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. “The vision of the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi who founded St. Clare College remains true today: we are rooted in the values of Catholic Christianity and inspired by the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi and the heritage of the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi and called to transform individuals to ‘approve the better things’ as they discover their purpose in life.”
