Mission Statement

Cardinal Stritch University is a Military Friendly School that supports veterans, active duty service personnel, reservists, National Guard Members, and their dependents in attaining their educational goals. 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, Cardinal Stritch University is an academic community called to transform individuals to "approve the better things" as they discover their purpose in life.

The University encourages academic excellence, along with intellectual, spiritual, and social growth among its entire community – faculty, staff, and students of all ages, faiths, and ethnic backgrounds.
Credit for Military/Armed Services Training
The Military Education Program, working in cooperation with the American Council on Education (ACE) and the Department of Defense (DOD), assists service men and women in achieving recognition for college-level learning acquired in military life. The University will evaluate and award credit from the military (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, and Department of Defense) by applying Stritch transfer credit policies to ACE credit recommendations.
Veteran's Resources
There are many services available at Stritch that support veterans in their pursuit of higher education. The Academic Support Center offers free tutoring for all Stritch students, both undergraduate and graduate, and provides professional, individualized assistance in a variety of areas. Career Services is available to all students, alumni, faculty and staff members. Career Services staff provide assessment services and assist with career exploration, career transitions and job search strategies for a diverse range of career interests. The Wellness Center can help you assess personal needs and make healthy life choices. The staff of the center offers counseling as a confidential short-term relationship between a student and a counselor that may involve examining personal attitudes, thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Cardinal Stritch University affirms the intent of Federal Law, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Act 504. Any Stritch student who may require accommodations and/or modifications due to a handicapped condition or learning disability should meet with the director of the Academic Support Center so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
