A great university can be described as a community of scholars, teachers and students, all seeking knowledge and using the power of human reason to discover the truth of things across every field of human endeavor.
To this, a Catholic university adds another order of knowledge — the knowledge of faith contained in divine revelation. The knowledge of God revealed in Jesus Christ. This results in an extraordinary intellectual freedom. The freedom to explore all of reality, seen and unseen. And thinking beyond material things, it is the Catholic university that can fully probe the frontiers of truth about humanity, culture, and God.
