Values in Action

Educational and Franciscan Values

For Saint Francis, value has two meanings: The value of your education and the Franciscan values we embed in everything we do. Together, these two sets of values make something truly special. An education that provides a clear career path with outcomes we take pride in and students that go on to build lives of meaning and impact.
