Inspired by Judeo-Christian values, the University aims to educate men and women who will become concerned and enlightened citizens. The university is committed to educational excellence in a context of faith in Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Word of God. It promotes life-long learning and fosters the development of the whole person. The faculty and students support one another in the search for and the communication of truth .
