Mission and Catholic Identity

The Catholic identity of the University of St. Thomas will be seen through its continuing engagement with and examination of the Catholic social, intellectual and spiritual tradition; its embracing of the complexity and diversity of the meaning of Catholicism; the commitment of all parts of the University to active exploration of the contributions they might make to the strengthening of values-based education for our students; and its unique mission as an urban university.

Strategic Direction on Catholic Identity, adopted September 21, 2000.
