Reflecting the traditions and philosophy of the Sisters of St. Francis, Lourdes commits itself to preparing students with the skills and attitudes they need to lead rich and meaningful lives in a complex, changing world.
Believing that the intellectual life is its primary responsibility, Lourdes affirms that reflection on the life of faith, with its ultimate question, is a true intellectual pursuit, bringing faith and reason into a disciplined and constructive encounter.
Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, drawing on the richness of the Judeo-Christian heritage, marked by an ecumenical spirit, and steeped in the spirit of Saint Francis, Lourdes seeks to build a faith community of seekers after truth.
This unified approach underscores the interrelatedness of all knowledge and the interconnectedness of all peoples, influencing each aspect of the life of the academic community. Through its basic liberal arts curriculum, Lourdes provides students with opportunities to integrate their deepest moral convictions with their intellectual and social interests and professional careers. It challenges them to develop a personal philosophy, preparing them for continuing and effective service to family, church, and global society. Believing in the education of the total person, Lourdes seeks to equip students for the world of work by integrating liberal learning with career education. Lourdes recognizes that development of a person's total potential requires lifelong learning; hence, Lourdes encourages students to make the search for truth a continuing quest.
Therefore, Lourdes seeks to provide educational opportunities by which students are challenged:
