We help students identify their passions and then commit to those passions inspired by our Ignatian heritage.
  • Diversity and Inclusion: We work to create a supportive, caring environment that honors all individuals where human dignity is paramount. We challenge and support students to engage with new experiences and people so they can learn and apply social justice.
  • Collaboration: We build relationships with campus and community partners to students with their development. We create an environment of innovation, and we develop programs and services to meet the needs of our students.
  • Engagement and Co-curricular Involvement: We encourage students to be active participants in their college experience so they can reflect and apply what they have learned, thus helping them connect their curricular and co-curricular experiences.
