Parent Programs offers a one-stop service for parents of Benedictine students. We respond to parent inquiries and provide information on a variety of issues to facilitate communication between parents and the University.

The Benedictine Parent Association is a University-supported, volunteer-led organization established to strengthen the tie between Benedictine and the families of current students by promoting parental involvement in campus activities. There are no costs or fees to join the association and all parents of Benedictine students automatically become members.

Dear Parent(s) and Families,

The following is a message from previous parent of Benedictine University Students:

“As a proud parent of four Benedictine graduates, I can say without hesitation that your student has made a sound decision to pursue a college degree here. A Benedictine education has provided my children with critical-thinking skills and leadership opportunities that are key in today’s competitive job climate. The faculty and staff are extremely caring and dedicated to making the interests of your student their number one priority.

They want students to build lasting friendships with each other and develop professional relationships with the faculty and staff. They also encourage them to step out of their comfort zones and partake in some of the many student organizations, events and other resources that are available to them on-campus. They want them to make lifelong memories, earn a Benedictine degree and become meaningful, productive and successful members of society, utilizing their gifts and talents to give back to their communities.

If your student has not yet identified a major or a career path, please let them know how they can help! They can provide the resources and support their need to have the best possible college experience.
