Saint John Henry Newman Undergraduate Program

The Saint John Henry Newman Undergraduate Program

Our program gathers bright, eager students into cohorts for discussion groups, lectures, liturgical worship, and cultural events.

We offer them opportunities to leverage the riches of the IHE for robust personal formation aimed at, as Saint John Henry Newman called it, the “cultivation of the mind.”

The goal of the program — to give to the Republic her best citizens — is accomplished by inculcating students with a deep sense of a thriving human ecology. We prepare them to complete their university studies with cultured minds, deepened faith, and civic virtue.
