The Center for Cura Personalis (CCP) takes this ethos of holistic care seriously, aiming to help every student feel cared for, supported, and valued. To learn more about the Jesuit concept of Cura Personalis, we encourage you to read the opening speech entitled ‘Cura Personalis” by Fr. General Peter-Hans Kolvenbach delivered at ‘Spiritual Accompaniment in the Ignatian Tradition’ (Rome, January-February 2007).
Below are the core values of the Center for Cura Personalis at Gonzaga University.
By being fully present and engaged, we validate and affirm students and each other. We cultivate genuine connection in an environment of care and trust.
We help students build confidence in their unique gifts and abilities to navigate toward their own solutions and shape their own lives.
We meet students where they are
We provide support through an individualized approach that invites students to reflect upon their goals, motivations and actions as they relate to themselves and the community.
We embrace a holistic approach to education alongside campus and community partners to provide a caring and seamless learning experience for students.
