Guided by the Mission values of Lewis University and its Lasallian heritage, the athletics program provides students with opportunities to enhance their education, develop skills and understanding through participation in athletics, and represent their University in intercollegiate competition. The goals of intercollegiate athletics are to enhance the physical and intellectual abilities of those participating in the program and to provide the opportunity for spectators from the Lewis community and the community-at-large to attend athletic events.

Athletic programs support the University’s educational program. The Lewis athletics program subscribes to the idea that properly administered intercollegiate sports are beneficial activities that contribute to the physical, intellectual and social experiences of the entire Lewis community.
