Strathmore University is an undertaking of corporate apostolate of Opus Dei. It was founded at the inspiration of St. Josemaria Escriva and focuses on university education.
Opus Dei is a personal prelature of the Catholic Church erected by Pope St. John Paul II on 28th November 1982. Through its activities, it seeks to spread the message that work, study, sports, family life, and other ordinary activities are occasions for spiritual union with Jesus Christ.
Among the initiatives promoted by Opus Dei are those of corporate apostolate such as Strathmore University where some faithful of Opus Dei, together with the ordinary citizens undertake secular, lay activities, in accordance with the law of the land, based on professional work, and always imbued with a Christian spirit. Other initiatives include, but are not limited to, training centres for farm workers, medical dispensaries and hospitals and schools that cater for the under-privileged in society. These undertakings have the official moral guarantee of the Prelature in all matters to do with their Christian orientation.
