Statement of Commitment to Human Dignity and Diversity at
Holy Family University
The mission of Holy Family University emphasizes and affirms the dignity of the person and the oneness of the human family. This mission encourages commitment to fostering a university community that is rich in its diversity of people and ideas.
To these ends, as a university community, we dedicate our efforts to respecting individuality, valuing personal dignity, fostering civility and mutual respect, and modeling the core values. We are an academic environment that provides a place for the sharing of ideas and values from many different traditions so to foster the awareness of one’s serious responsibility toward all humanity.
We, at Holy Family University, are dedicated to empowering our students with knowledge and sensitivity to “assume life-long responsibilities towards God, society and self.” We embrace the challenge of seeking peace and harmony in a diverse global community.
