University Relations Office

Welcome to Briar Cliff University and the University Relations Office webpage! We hope that as you take a look around, you will strengthen and renew your connection to BCU.  

Our office serves the alumni, donors and friends of the university. Briar Cliff is a coeducational, private university offering strong, values-based, liberal arts education as well as quality career preparation. Our values include our Catholic Franciscan identity, our challenging academic environment, our focus on the student, our culture of service, our appreciation of diversity and respect for each person, our commitment to shared governance and collaborative decision making, and our innovative response to change

If you would like to help promote the mission, vision and values of Briar Cliff, please contact the University Relations Office. And whenever you are on campus, please stop by our office in Noonan Hall. We would love to see you!
