|School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):|
We are Newman University named for John Henry Cardinal Newman and founded by the Adorers of the Blood of Christ for the purpose of empowering graduates to transform society.
Newman students expect more from their education because they are expected to do more with it. Through the development of the whole person (the academic, social and spiritual) Newman students discover their capabilities and how they can positively impact their society and world. The academic degree Newman students receive is not the end, but rather a means to a greater purpose; a tool to aid them as they work to make the world a better place. Newman University's goal for students is to be more than an accountant or biologist; graduates are to use the expertise they gain in their academic area to transform society.
