The Opportunity Ahead

“The opportunity lies before us to further the mission of St. Norbert College by embracing the Norbertine ideal of communio and living our motto, docere verbo et exemplo. As we journey ahead, we will not seek to radically change a course that has taken us far; rather, we will build upon our momentum as an exemplar in higher education. We will remain rooted in our heritage, and centered on our transformational vision as we pursue the next level of its expression. Through the efforts of our entire college community – distinguished faculty and staff, beloved alumni, family and friends – we will confirm our place among the most highly esteemed Catholic liberal arts colleges in the nation. Most important, we will illuminate a path for our students to find an authentic love of learning, a passion for the pursuit of wisdom, and the ability to flourish in this complex, beautiful world.”
