Jesuit, Catholic Heritage and Student Formation
Cura personalis or “care for the whole person” is more than a Jesuit expression. It is a way of life at BC and a charge to engage our students intellectually, socially, and spiritually.
One hundred and fifty years after its founding, Boston College remains true to its Jesuit, Catholic roots.
During the campaign, loyal benefactors can continue to secure this unique heritage while making it live anew on campus and resonate in the wider world. Through reflective retreats, innovative curricula, and academic inquiry, BC embraces the ideal of cura personalis or “care for the whole person.”
The establishment and growth of the School of Theology and Ministry is a significant step. Similarly, the recently launched Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies is positioned to become a global resource for Jesuit spirituality and pedagogy. Elsewhere, courses like PULSE and Perspectives and initiatives like the Center for Student Formation further integrate students’ social, intellectual, and spiritual development.
Your support ensures BC’s distinctive mission remains strong.
