    About Aquinas College

    For any institution of any type to flourish, it must have a clear identity and mission to which it must be fully committed. A vision begins with the givens of Core Values (Who we are) and Core Purpose (Why we exist) then moves to an envisioned future. The first step for Aquinas was to clearly define the purpose of the College and to establish realistic goals and objectives consistent with that mission in a defined time-frame and within the College's capacity for implementation. * "New Horizons 2015," Aquinas College's Strategic Report » Our Mission Aquinas College is a private Catholic institution of higher education.
