BenU at Mesa seeks to inspire students to recognize their responsibilities as members of the community and become involved in its everyday life. Benedictine graduates see themselves not merely as residents, but as citizens of their communities and know that the lives of all people, regardless of social position, education or age, are entwined.
The University draws upon the wisdom of the church regarding ways to build a just society and live lives of holiness in the modern world. To that end, the University engages key themes of modern Catholic social teaching identified by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Those themes include life and dignity of the human person; call to family, community and participation; rights and responsibilities; option for the poor and vulnerable; the dignity of work and the rights of workers; solidarity; and care for God's creation.
Benedictine’s mission reflects our devotion to helping students – regardless of racial or ethnic background, religious beliefs and value systems – become responsible persons who will make positive contributions to society.
