Right relationships, with God, self, others and creation
Respect and generosity are at the core of our work as educators, values instilled in us as a Catholic institution by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet at our founding in 1916. We take that legacy seriously. From mentorship to service organizations to our active campus ministry, our community is built on healthy relationships with our students, faculty, staff, alumni and neighbors. And because we all share the same home, we also do our part to take care of the Earth, with extensive recycling and sustainability initiatives throughout campus.
