Welcome to Donnelly College —

Built upon the pillars of faith, wisdom and solidarity, Donnelly College embodies the Benedictine values of truth, excellence, community, diversity, inclusivity, justice and service. With liberal arts and sciences rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, Donnelly College provides education that works and values that last.

Today, the College is recognized as an educational and social leader in our region, largely through the witness of those who have pursued their education with Donnelly. As the student testimonials on our website show, Donnelly has played a major role in shaping the lives of our students and for many has been the catalyst to recognizing and fulfilling their potential and vocations.

In addition to our Catholic values, Donnelly College is committed to service and to developing a community of learners. These values lead to student success and growth in their careers, minds and spirits. At Donnelly, we help students discover who they are and why they are. Our students are the dream makers; we are here to help them achieve their dreams.

I invite you to become a part of Donnelly — as a student, a volunteer, a supporter or an advocate.

Sincerely yours,

Msgr. Stuart W. Swetland, S.T.D.
