Alverno College - Your power starts here.
Some educations change your perspective. Others change your life.
Your education should be all about you, helping you to become the best version of yourself and to realize your potential by becoming the person you haven’t yet imagined.
At Alverno College, we know the measure of academic success involves more than the receipt of a diploma. We engage you – connect you to the world around you. We focus on your background and your goals. We help you reach for something far more valuable than a career.
As one of the nation’s largest Catholic women’s colleges, Alverno is dedicated to your personal and professional development. We offer weekday and weekend undergraduate programs for women, as well as graduate programs for women and men.
At Alverno, you will be held to high academic standards. You will be challenged to write, to speak, to present research and to demonstrate knowledge in every area of study. This will be one of the most comprehensive learning experiences of your life -- one you shouldn’t miss and will never forget.
We offer an impressive range of majors and minors to keep you engaged while providing nearly limitless opportunities within your chosen field of study.
It’s learning that lasts.
Alverno graduates are easy to recognize in the real world. They live their Alverno experience every day, and you will too. From the boardroom to the classroom, you will demonstrate and apply what you’ve mastered throughout your education. You’ll make your mark on the world in business, education, healthcare, the arts and your community.
Our community of students, faculty and staff is one of collaboration, a free exchange of ideas, energy, respect, justice, commitment to environment and hospitality. Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Alverno College was chartered in 1887 by the School Sisters of St. Francis.
