Developing a foundation for intellectual, personal and social integration

Dignitas provides a common experience for first-year students and builds the foundation for the students' entire college experience by introducing them to the key elements unique to a St. Scholastica education. Dignitas, the Latin word for dignity, is the program's signature element focusing on the intrinsic, absolute value of being a person.

In Dignitas, students are asked important questions that shape learning, actions, and purpose as members of the CSS community. These questions support the Dignitas learning outcomes, providing structure and coherence to each course. Key elements of the St. Scholastica Mission and Values are integrated directly into the curriculum. In Dignitas, students are asked to ask questions and seek answers in preparation for "responsible living and meaningful work."
