A Vision for Brescia University:  A moral and intellectual powerhouse, adapting to the needs of the 21st century and beyond

We see Brescia University recognized as a moral and intellectual powerhouse with destination programs that will draw students from near and far.

We see programs such as our School of Education, the Marilyn Younger-Conley School of Social Work, and the Charles Albert Reid School of Business recognized for the unique educational experience they offer.

  • Focus on the qualities promoted by the liberal arts and Ursuline heritage;
  • Educate the total person in a caring and
    supportive environment;
  • Equip students to join the workforce as
    leaders and innovators;

    and the building of a more compassionate
    human community through service.

We see an educational experience rich with tradition and ritual that will instill pride and a sense of belonging in our students and alumni.
