The Five Pillars — Spiritual Depth

The Five Pillars — Spiritual Depth

Establishing spiritual depth is coming to understand what it means to be human while developing personal value systems and responsible self-direction.

St. Joseph's University encourages its community to value wonder, empathy, humility and gratitude in everyday life. Our students are strongly encouraged to be compassionate to those around them and to celebrate their differences, while remaining true to their personal morals. Some students honor their spiritual depth by embracing religion and getting involved with Campus Ministry. Others carry out acts of service or educate themselves about those who are different from them.

"Studying religion creates empathy. St. Joseph’s students have the tools to listen and understand where others with different backgrounds and beliefs are coming from."
