Catholic Identity

Newman University wholeheartedly embraces its Catholic identity. As a Catholic institution of higher learning, Newman finds guidance in Ex corde ecclesiae and other teachings of the Catholic Church and draws sustenance from its relationships with surrounding Catholic communities and dioceses.

Academic Excellence

Because Newman University is an institution of higher education, academic excellence is central to our mission. Following the ideals of Cardinal Newman, we seek to educate the whole person. A firm grounding in the liberal arts strengthens all our programs and instills habits of lifelong learning that will accompany graduates as they pursue a variety of personal, academic, and professional goals.

Culture of Service

The passion to serve others is integral to the missions of both Newman University and the Adorers of the Blood of Christ. We actualize this mandate by fostering a distinctive culture of service in which each member of the community is encouraged to find personally fulfilling ways of growing through giving.

Global Perspective

In accordance with its mission statement, Newman University is committed to promoting "an interdependent global perspective formed by a critical consciousness that hungers and thirsts for justice and peace."
