Our faculty members help students deepen their perspective and purpose in the context of Christ.

You know that you learn by example as much or more as you do from your studies—and we know that, too. That’s why our professors integrate faith and learning in everything they do. They will ask you to reflect because they know the value of reflection. They will encourage you to take retreat because they understand its impact. And they will expect you to live with resolve because they know that is the essence and purpose of a Christian life.
