 Benedict College is a college where each student’s experience in academic, residential and co-curricular activities is transformative and customer-service focused; at the same time, Benedict faculty and staff work in a collaborative, transparent environment where data-based decisions are also girded in compassion. Benedict College is a place of full-time learning from the classroom, to the playing field, to the residence hall and out into the community where the legacy of “BC” as inclusive, pioneering, and “family” is respected and cherished.
