Encountering Truth, Goodness, and Beauty through an Assumption Education

"Our Catholic identity expresses itself in the nature of the education we offer, one rooted in the pursuit of truth and a particular view of the human person ... In this tradition of education—a tradition uniquely imbued with the charism of the Augustinians of the Assumption—we learn the virtues of the head and the heart, of the neighborhood and the workplace, not by being told what they are but rather through encounters with truth and beauty and subtlety as they express themselves in the tapestry of disciplines we study and the experiences we share."

President Weiner's Inaugural Address

"An Assumption Education is an Education to Communion."

"You may have noticed that one phrase in the University’s new mission statement has quickly gained some currency around here:  to seek the truth in the company of friends. ... It’s taken from the Confessions of St. Augustine, who knew a thing or two about friendship.

One thing to note about the phrase: it means more than saying that they’ll be friends around as we pursue our education here.  Friends are not just a backdrop or a context, but an intrinsic part of the kind of education that Assumption stands for."

I am honored to help lead Assumption toward new possibilities...

... that embrace our Catholic educational mission and welcome all, no matter who they may be, who seek to pursue the truth in the company of friends. I am grateful to the Board of Trustees and to the members of the Presidential Search Committee.
