Mission

Alverno was founded in 1887 by the School Sisters of St. Francis for the purpose of educating women. The college provides educational opportunities to all women, regardless of socio-economic background. Well over 50% of Alverno students are the first in their families to attend college and more than 70% qualify for need-based financial aid. Alverno boasts the highest percentage of minority students for any public or private college in Wisconsin. To serve students of modest means, Alverno tuition is kept as affordable as possible and is among the lowest of Wisconsin's 21 private colleges.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program

The student body, numbering approximately 2,200, is drawn largely from Southeast Wisconsin. The college offers two timeframes for students to complete their degrees- Weekday and Weekend College. What distinguishes Alverno from virtually all other colleges and attracts attention from educators around the world is its dynamic approach to teaching. Students are expected to acquire the knowledge traditionally associated with a baccalaureate degree and master 8 complex abilities needed to apply that knowledge effectively throughout their lives. The abilities are analysis, problem solving, communication, social interaction, valuing in decision making, effective citizenship, global perspective taking, and aesthetic responsiveness. Faculty in the 24 liberal arts and professional areas have reshaped all of their courses to ensure student development of these abilities. They have also designed systematic programs of performance assessment to measure student demonstration of the abilities at progressively higher levels of sophistication and to reinforce self-learning.
