Benedictine University is a private Roman Catholic university located in Lisle, a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. The school was founded in 1887 as St. Procopius College by the Benedictine monks of St. Procopius Abbey in the Pilsen community on the west side of Chicago. The institution has retained a close relationship with the Benedictine Order, which bears the name of St. Benedict (480-543 A.D.), the acknowledged father of western monasticism. The school secured its charter from the state of Illinois in 1890, and moved to its current location in 1901. St. Procopius College changed its name to Illinois Benedictine College in 1971, and became Benedictine University in 1996. Benedictine University is minutes from Metra's Burlington Northern train station in Lisle and a 30-minute drive from O'Hare International Airport and Midway International Airport. The university is in proximity to the many social and cultural offerings of the Chicago metropolitan area, including museums, professional athletic teams, broadway shows and the Morton Arboretum. Also nearby are two national research facilities—Argonne National Laboratory and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The university's location in the high-tech East-West Tollway corridor provides various internship and employment opportunities for students.
