Edgewood College is a private, co-educational liberal arts college in the Dominican Catholic tradition in Madison, Wisconsin, in the Diocese of Madison. Overlooking the shores of Lake Wingra, it occupies 55 acres (22 ha) on Madison's near west side.
The college has an undergraduate liberal arts curriculum, with nursing, educational, and business tracks, an art therapy program, and refresher courses for IT professionals. Master's programs in business, education, nursing, marriage and family therapy, and sustainability leadership are offered as are two doctoral programs, an Ed.D. in educational leadership and a doctor of nursing practice (DNP) in leadership.
The Edgewood College property was bought in 1855 by Mr. Ashmead from Governor Leonard J. Farwell, and later developed by Samuel Marshall. He beautified the land by planting trees, formal gardens, and climbing grapevines on trellises. Governor Cadwallader Washburn purchased Edgewood villa in 1873, making it his home. Later he donated it to the Dominican Sisters for educational purposes.
