Lewis University-Albuquerque is a private, Catholic university where the traditions of liberal learning and preparation for professional life give the university its educational identity and mission focus.
The Lewis main campus is located in Romeoville, Ill., 30 minutes southwest of Chicago. For eight consecutive years, Lewis has been named one of the "Best Colleges" by U.S. News & World Report and received recognition from The Princeton Review.
Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers and regionally accredited by the Department of Education's Higher Learning Commission, Lewis University has a long and successful history in providing adult students an opportunity to complete a college degree with a learner-centered accelerated delivery format compatible with their needs and lifestyles. The Christian Brothers have been teaching in New Mexico since 1859 and Lewis continues that educational mission in the Albuquerque region.
Teaching is a top priority with the focus on faculty/student interaction. The outstanding faculty base consists of full-time professors and expert part-time practitioners, who bring practical, real-world experience to the classroom.
The curriculum is relevant and balances globalization and competition with ethics and values. The courses are designed to broaden and enhance students’ analytical, quantitative and problem-solving skills.
Small, personalized classes provide faculty with an opportunity to mentor their students and involve them in real-world projects. The eight-week accelerated class format is ideal for working adults who are juggling work, family, and social obligations, in addition to their desire to achieve their educational goals.
