We develop students who are equipped to address global economic, social and ecological challenges in a constructive, creative manner through proactive, hands-on education in Catholic social teaching and care for creation.In his encyclical Laudato Si, Pope Francis says: “Let us be protectors of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.” This document, coupled with the Jesuits Universal Apostolic Preferences call to better Care for Our Common Home, guides our sustainability efforts at SLUH.
