Why Stritch?

"My mission is to prepare leaders to transform their organizations and their communities. Likewise, Stritch transforms students lives, so they can then create transformation in their own organizations through leadership, learning, service and research. Students return for additional degrees and certifications because they recognize that learning at Stritch is not about just knowledge and skills, it is about thinking, acting, and serving differently as a result of their experiences.
