About Edgewood College

Since 1927, students have enjoyed this comfortable and friendly campus, and the relationships created here. By attending an independent liberal arts college in Madison, Wisconsin, you too will enjoy great opportunities for learning in and out of the classroom, and make the connections we all need for a great career, and a lifetime of learning.

As a Catholic college in the Dominican tradition, we are committed above all to the lifelong search for truth, pursued by men and women of all nationalities and backgrounds. All of us -- regardless of our personal spiritual beliefs -- are partners in the pursuit of a just and compassionate world.

When you visit, you’ll discover a campus community where fulltime undergraduate students, returning adult students and graduate students enjoy challenging and engaging educational experiences. We continue to introduce new academic programs that help prepare for an increasingly dynamic world. Our Deming Way campus on Madison's west side serves as the hub for many of our returning adult and graduate programs. We serve the Wausau area by offering a second site there for our Doctorate in Educational Leadership program. And we’ve added online programs that maintain and enhance the quality you expect.

For more than eighty years, we've put our students first in everything we do. We invite you to explore the College, and discover a place where students connect learning, beliefs and action.
