Welcome to Madonna University
Welcome to Madonna University, home of the Crusaders. While our student-athletes are Crusaders for victory in
their athletic contests, we are all Crusaders for knowledge and for peace. It is great that you are pursuing one or
more of our exciting academic programs that will prepare you for an enriching career or for graduate school

Although 2020 has brought its share of challenges, the flame of Madonna continues to burn brightly, and I'm so
looking forward to having you and 3,000 others back on campus. You will thrive in our Catholic, Christian
atmosphere, and student-focused learning environment. Established by the Felician Sisters of North America,
Madonna University was founded upon these Franciscan values: respect for the dignity of each person, reverence
for creation, the pursuit of peace and justice, and education for truth and service to others. Our degrees change
lives, starting with yours. Then, after you graduate, you'll go out into the world and you'll change the lives of those
you serve in your career. We couldn't be more proud of the more than 33,000 Madonna alumni who have made a
difference in their communities

While this academic year will be unique in many ways, with masks and social distancing to keep us all safe, we will
still deliver the quality Madonna education that attracted you. I encourage you to take full advantage of the
services and resources available; from our talented and caring faculty and tutors, to the library, and many labs

Participate in service-learning projects and internships. Get involved in campus clubs, guest lectures, performing
arts, athletics, or other campus activities. These “beyond-the-classroom” experiences will enhance your education,
broaden your mind, and expand your network. I trust that this Catalog will help you make the most of your time at
Madonna University. Please know that all of us, faculty and staff alike, are committed to your success

For Madonna,
Michael A. Grandillo, Ph.D

President
