Mission / Identity / Vision
The College is sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa, a community formed on August 4, 1847, by Fr. Samuel Mazzuchelli, O.P., in Sinsinawa, Wisconsin.
“O.P.” stands for Order of Preachers, and is carried by members of the Dominican community.
Edgewood College, rooted in the Dominican tradition, engages students within a community of learners committed to building a just and compassionate world. The College educates students for meaningful personal and professional lives of ethical leadership, service, and a lifelong search for truth.
Sponsored by the Sinsinawa Dominicans, Edgewood College is a community of learners that affirms both its Catholic heritage and its respect for other religious traditions. The liberal arts are the foundation of all our curricular offerings in the humanities, arts, sciences, and professional programs. Committed to excellence in teaching and learning, we seek to develop intellect, spirit, imagination, and heart. We embrace and aspire to reflect the rich diversity of the world’s cultures and perspectives. We foster open, caring, thoughtful engagement with one another and an enduring commitment to service, all in an educational community that seeks truth, compassion, justice and partnership.
Edgewood College will be an inclusive model of learning, teaching, and scholarship. Our students, alumni, faculty, and staff will be recognized for their pursuit of purposeful lives, vibrant and sustainable communities, and a just world.
What is meaningful to members of the Edgewood College community, experienced consistently enough that we can promise it with integrity? Connecting learning, beliefs, and action.
