Moral & Spiritual Values
Attention to the mission of the University serves as the foundation of the Core Curriculum, specifically the commitment to excellence in education and a concern for moral and spiritual values. The Spiritan values of global justice, the kinship of all peoples, and service to others figure prominently. Literacy in philosophy and theology, the "bedrock" disciplines of a holistic Catholic education, coupled with the theme areas of "faith and reason," global diversity, and social justice in the curriculum reflect the University's Catholic Spiritan commitment. The service-learning requirement links academic theory and community-based practice. The study of ethics is not only a requirement of the Core but has also been incorporated into all programs. And programming in campus ministry focused upon prayer, theological reflection, education and service for justice, and spirituality further solidify this strong commitment.
