Teresa Hall Bartels

Welcome to Newman University!

As interim president, I am delighted to welcome you to our university’s website. As our mission statement reads: Newman University is a Catholic university named for St. John Henry Newman and founded by the Adorers of the Blood of Christ for the purpose of empowering graduates to transform society. I am confident in saying our alumni are indeed transforming society.

A college degree is more than just a piece of paper to us. Our faculty and staff work tirelessly with full dedication to create an experience that each of our graduates carries with them for the rest of their lives. Whether they are immediately starting a career or furthering their education by pursuing a master’s and even a doctorate, Newman graduates are powerfully making a difference in their communities and the lives of others.

Newman University offers a diverse curriculum and is committed to educating the whole person. We’re taking that to the next level with Navigator. Launching in August 2020, our new program model concentrates on the whole student experience.

Navigator focuses on four components: The personalized career path, leadership development, hands-on learning and providing a dedicated support team. With Navigator, we’ve taken what we do best and combined it into one model, which allows for an enhanced experience for each individual student. Graduates will not only receive an education, but the guidance and tools to discern their purpose.

I’m excited you’ve taken the time to visit our website and hope your curiosity is further fueled. We would love for you to visit campus and see in person what the university has to offer. Whether you are a traditional first-time student, transferring from another university or seeking a master’s degree, we would love to meet with you and find out if Newman is the right fit for your collegiate future.
