Benedictine 2020 is Benedictine College’s plan to build one of the great Catholic colleges in America. For more than 150 years, Benedictine College has been educating men and women for the glory of God and the service of the common good. Now is the time to face the challenges of a new generation and rise once again to meet them.
Benedictine 2020 focuses on achieving academic excellence. The college’s mission statement commits us to “the education of men and women within a community of faith and scholarship.” This means that at Benedictine College, academic excellence necessarily goes beyond the classroom. To be one of the great Catholic colleges in America, Benedictine College must achieve a leadership position in each aspect of its mission: dynamic community, thriving faith life and inspiring scholarship.
Extensive community reflection, analysis, and discussion of this goal have led to the identification of the key strategic priorities that will guide the college on the path to greatness.
- Recruit, retain and develop one of the great Catholic college faculties in America.
- Enroll, engage and educate students capable of transforming the world through intellectual, personal and spiritual greatness.
- Build, maintain and beautify the facilities and technological infrastructure needed to serve our mission with excellence.
- Secure, sustain and steward the human and financial resources necessary for one of the great Catholic colleges in America.
