We have faith in your future
Albertus Magnus College is a Catholic college founded by the Dominican Sisters of Peace. The College affirms the essential dignity of each person as a being of divine origin. Because it's rooted in the Dominican tradition, Albertus Magnus is devoted to the pursuit of truth in all of its dimensions and to the proposition that faith and reason are complementary. Thus, the College fosters a commitment to scholarly exploration and the principles of academic freedom. We welcome diversity and are dedicated to facilitating the intellectual growth of students, faculty, and administrative staff so they may develop individual gifts and acquire habits of mind necessary to pursue truth. The Albertus community is dedicated to creating an open institution environment which supports intellectual, spiritual, and social development. Students from all faiths and non-believers are welcomed and encouraged to share their traditions and experiences.
The Four Pillars Of The Dominican Tradition
Our namesake, Albert the Great, was a scholar who integrated faith and reason; the spiritual and the scientific. In this tradition, the Office of Dominican Ministries promotes the connection of God to all we study.
The Office of Dominican Ministries coordinates, organizes, and promotes opportunities for prayer and contemplation, with our Saint Catherine of Siena Chapel open each day. The Chapel is the place of regular events of worship and prayer reflecting our Catholic heritage and our openness to the diverse faiths found in the Albertus Magnus Community. The Coordinator of the Office provides prayer and reflection for college events as well.
The Dominican Tradition encourages us to see and make connections—and promotes the connectedness we share among each other in the College's community and world beyond. As unique members of the community, each one of us "...attempts to seek out the wonder of the material universe...and finds... perfection in wisdom, which gently draws the human mind to look for and love what is true and good." (Gaudium et Spes, Vatican II)
Service is the natural response of a life open to God through prayer and contemplation, opening us to the needs of the whole world through service and promotion of the common good. The Office of Dominican Ministries offers opportunities for service both on and off campus.The Office reaches out to the poor, those at risk, and the marginalized of our communities and our world. We foster an awareness of a variety of service opportunities and strive to put into action a desire to serve.
