Caring for Students

Cura Personalis

Cared for, our students are challenged. Challenged, they awaken to their real potential. Awakened, they are transformed. Transformed, they are empowered.

Joseph M. McShane, SJ, President of Fordham University

One of the tenets of a Jesuit education is cura personalis - “care of the whole person.” It means that we don’t just tend to your educational growth; we strive to foster your moral, emotional and spiritual growth, too. It also means we take our responsibility for your well-being and safety very seriously.
