Madonna University is an independent, Catholic liberal arts university located in suburban Livonia, Michigan, United States, on the western perimeter of metropolitan Detroit. Conducted by the Felician Sisters, it has extension campuses in southwest Detroit, Orchard Lake, Clinton Township, Michigan at the Macomb University Center, and at the University Center in Gaylord, Michigan. Though strong in its affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church, the school attracts students and faculty of all faiths.


Founded by the Felician Sisters in 1937 as Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary college, the university offers more than 100 undergraduate majors toward associate and bachelor's degrees as well as 35 master's programs in clinical psychology, business, criminal justice, education, history and health professions. In May 2009, Madonna began offering its first doctorate, the Doctor of Nursing Practice. Among the largest Catholic, Franciscan universities in the country, Madonna University is situated an 80 acre wooded campus.

Madonna University’s commitment to developing a sustainable and eco-friendly campus was recognized when the U.S. Green Building Council awarded Gold level LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for the University’s 60,000 square-foot Franciscan Center.

The school is ranked by the U.S. News and World Report under the category "University - Master's" as a Midwest university, 88th in the 1st tier (2011).



Madonna University teams are known as the Crusaders. The university is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), competing in the Wolverine–Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC). Men's sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, golf and soccer; while women's sports include basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball and volleyball.

The campus features a regulation-size gym located in the Activities Center, which seats up to 600 people; international-size soccer field, which hosts camps and tournaments; Ilitch Ballpark baseball field and fast-pitch softball field. Athletic grants and scholarships are available to students who show promising talent and have demonstrated academic success.


The Madonna Now is the university's magazine for alumni and friends. The Madonna Herald is the University's newspaper, which is produced by Madonna's Journalism Department headed by professor Neal Haldane. The Madonna Muse is an annual literary journal.

Madonna Online Radio[edit]

In the university's Franciscan Center studios, students operate an on-line radio station at Live 365. The format is freeform, and features occasional live broadcasts from students of the program. The broadcast is located at Madonna University On-Line Radio.


The Broadcast and Cinema Arts students also produce a television show, "Celebrate Michigan" that airs on MyTV20 in the Detroit area.
