Cabrini’s Mission

Education of the Heart

Cabrini University is a Catholic institution of higher education dedicated to academic excellence, leadership development, and a commitment to social justice. 

Cabrini welcomes learners of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds, and prepares them to become engaged citizens of the world.

Mission Background

More than a century ago, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini urged her teachers to 'educate the hearts' of their students.

She insisted that a Cabrinian education link intellectual competence with moral development and instill a special concern for those persons who are in need.

Cabrini University continues this Education of the Heart by providing liberal arts education mixed with hands-on learning, as well as a living and learning environment that develops leaders who can succeed professionally and contribute to their communities.
