Chartered in 1887 as St. Joseph's Normal School, Alverno offers weekday and weekend undergraduate programs, as well as a coeducational Master of Arts program for teachers and business professionals, The Alverno MBA, and a Master of Science in Nursing. The Weekend College was opened in 1977 as the first alternative timeframe program in Milwaukee in order to serve working women in the Milwaukee area.
