Founded in 1932, Lewis University was one of the first Universities in this region to offer undergraduate accelerated programs for working adults. Today, more than 40 percent of our student body consists of adult students who are working while balancing family commitments and attending either undergraduate or graduate programs.

Lewis is a dynamic, mid-sized University of 6,200 undergraduate and graduate students, offering high quality academic programs and a wonderfully-diverse community of learners. Our values-centered curriculum combines a liberal arts foundation blended with relevant professional education. Lewis has been named one of the "Best Colleges" by U.S. News & World Report and received recognition from The Princeton Review.

Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis focuses on faculty/student interaction. Teaching is a top priority here. Small, personalized classes provide faculty with an opportunity to mentor their students and involve them in projects and research.
