Cardinal Stritch University grounds its liberal arts program and its core activities of teaching, learning, scholarship and service in the Catholic faith which affirms the goodness of all creation and views human persons as created in the image of God and endowed with individual dignity.
The Cardinal Stritch University consists of four colleges: College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business and Management, College of Education and Leadership, and the Ruth S. Coleman College of Nursing and Health Sciences offering more than 70 fields of study at both undergraduate and graduate levels, and in a variety of innovative class formats. A Stritch education can not only meet your educational goals, but challenge you to find intellectual, spiritual, and social growth. We have 105 full-time faculty members. We also employ several hundred adjunct faculty, who remain practitioners in their fields and provide highly skilled instruction. Athletics plays an important role at Stritch, with 21 intercollegiate teams for men and women, numerous intramural leagues, and a spirit squad. The arts are appreciated by our campus community. Our diverse offerings aim to entertain and inform the community as a whole. Our talented theater students star in productions that range from musicals to the classics. The work of contemporary and historical visual artists, as well as Stritch students, is exhibited in our Northwestern Mutual Art Gallery. Recitals, concerts and musicals are offered throughout the year in an array of musical genres. Music and theater performances are in the Joan Steele Stein Center for Communication Studies/Fine Arts, which includes the 400-seat Nancy Kendall Theater.
