Skills that take you further

There are certain skills that will help you stand out from the competition no matter the career you choose, like being able to creatively solve problems and critically analyze information. We call these skills the 8 Abilities, and we embed them in every single class you take here. These are the skills that will impress employers, and they’re also what help so many of our students land jobs before graduation.

Portrait Confidence

Building confidence

As a women's college, our community is here to welcome you and empower you to achieve your full potential. That's why our graduates will say they found their voice here, or became more confident than ever. Here is where they realized all they were capable of, where they rose to meet challenges and where they found a home in our Alverno Strong sisterhood.


And it does work. Just ask Isabelle:

Quote open


"I chose Alverno because of its grading process, which uses narrative feedback instead of letter grades. I had never heard of something so different and this was the perfect choice for my learning style. Here, I'm not afraid to fail. I know that every single teacher wants the best for me and wants to see me succeed. I am never afraid to ask for help because every faculty member here is was open to helping me."

– Isabelle, kinesiology major
