VUSM 100 Franciscan Values and Traditions
Viterbo University was founded in 1890 by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. This entry-level seminar examines that heritage and what it means to be and behave like a Franciscan. These courses will use the works of Saints Francis, Clare, and Rose of Viterbo as a foundation for exploring the university’s core values of hospitality, integrity, contemplation, stewardship, and service.
- Students will compare, contrast, and consider Franciscan values, Viterbo core values, and disciplinary values.
- Students will compare and contrast their personal values to Franciscan, Viterbo, and disciplinary values.
- Students will compare and contrast their own personal values to the values of other people.
