The Scholars Program

Housed in the College of Liberal Arts, Benedictine University's Scholars Program offers academically talented students from across the University special opportunities to develop their skills as thinkers, readers and writers through a coordinated program of seminar-style coursework that emphasizes discussion and debate about vital intellectual questions. The Program also aims to help its members grow as leaders and global citizens by heightening their understanding of other cultures and encouraging a commitment to socially responsible action.
