2022 Newman University year in review

Our provident God has blessed us beyond all expectations.”

Sister Vicki Bergkamp, ASC

The ongoing support we’ve received as a community has allowed Newman University students, alumni, faculty and staff to continue to shine through adversity in 2022.

Faculty and staff went above and beyond the call of duty, not only in the classroom but also in finding door-opening opportunities for students. Our students, in turn, rose to meet the challenges before them and fueled their passions to begin future endeavors.

We hope you enjoy a glance back on the memories made, newfound hope and the outstanding individuals worth remembering and celebrating. Newman University wishes you a safe and blessed holiday season as we eagerly await the coming new year.

Faith and Service

A culture of service is one of the pillars of Newman, and everyone from outstanding students to hardworking staff contributes to this selfless form of work. We would like to give special thanks to our founders, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, whose faithful and continued prayer helps fuel us to reach beyond our perceived limitations.
