President Michael GrandilloWelcome,
Madonna University is a remarkable place, established by the Felician Sisters more than 75 years ago as a Catholic, independent college dedicated to the liberal arts, career preparation, and public service. As Madonna's first lay president, it is a high honor to join this ambitious, passionate, creative, and informed group, whose clear focus is the education and success of students. We devote ourselves daily to preparing them for lives that will make the world a better place.

It is a great privilege for me to witness members of the Madonna family living out our Franciscan values. As a community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, and benefactors, we will continue to achieve great things as we carry on the legacy of the Felician Sisters.

I am deeply grateful for this opportunity to work with a fantastic team of faculty and staff to serve the students, alumni, parents, benefactors, friends of Madonna University, and surrounding communities. I look forward to all of the changes, challenges, and chances for success that lie ahead and hope that Madonna can be a part of your educational pursuits as well as a place for you to grow as a person.
