Lewis University is a private, comprehensive coeducational Catholic university sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, a Roman Catholic teaching order with over 320 years of teaching experience in the LaSallian tradition. Located in Romeoville, Illinois, the school was founded in 1932 as the Holy Name Technical School but was later renamed Lewis Holy Name Technical School after philanthropist Frank L. Lewis. After a series of name changes and the end of WW-II, the school began to steadily expand and by 1962 its official name was shortened to Lewis College and in 1973 to the current Lewis University.
Today, Lesley University is recognized as one of the finest Catholic universities in the U.S. providing over 80 undergraduate majors and programs of study, 22 graduate programs, and accelerated programs for working adults through its academic divisions that include the College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business, College of Education, College of Nursing & Health Professions, and the School of Professional & Continuing Studies.
In addition to its campus-based offerings, Lesley also offers high-quality online degree programs for the busy working adult. These programs include BA in Fire Service Administration; MS in Public Safety Administration; MS in Information Security; MS in Nursing; and MA in Organizational leadership.
Lewis University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association. It has been consistently cited for the past five years as one of the best colleges in the region by both The Princeton Review and the U.S. News and World Report.
