Having successfully reached their 2020 strategic goals even amidst the Covid pandemic, Benedictine is launching a capital campaign to create four new centers:
- The Center of Constitutional Liberty
- The Center of Beauty and Culture
- The Center of Family Life
- The Center of Eco-Stewardship
The sky is the limit for this faithful Catholic college that is boldly stepping forward while many other schools are trying to figure out if they will be able to open in the Fall.
Founded by monks and nuns who overcame the challenges of the early Kansas frontier, Benedictine College doesn’t shy away from educating students to become leaders in the tradition of St. Benedict—leaders who will transform the world through their commitment to intellectual, personal, and spiritual greatness.
Home to over 1,900 students, Benedictine has seen a record growth in enrollment and added 30% more full-time faculty in recent years. Alumni in the 21st century have been bank presidents (13), university presidents (8), bishops (7), and are known to be open to religious vocations (200 pursued since 2000). The campus has added ten new residence halls since 2004, and since 2011, athletic teams have four Final Fours, 50 national tournament appearances, 26 Conference championships, 80 All-Americans, 200 NAIA Scholar Athletes, 1,000 All-Conference players and 19 coaches of the year.
All of this is to say that, as one who represents Benedictine College to major prospects, the MGO will have a lot to work with, including the full backing of a college leadership team that is not sitting idly by while America enters into a troubling time.
