Our Mission

by Terragan on February 20, 2017

in Campus Community

Fontbonne and its founding by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet work to further the common good we all share in our exchanging of values of friends and family and through service. Its hard to find another religious order that has been on the forefront and facilitator of social change outside the CSJs. I, coming from a public school background and wasn’t raised in a particularly religious household, found the work and message spread by Fontbonne and its founders to be universal. Our mission statement is:

“Fontbonne University, a Catholic institution sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, is committed to the common good through the daily pursuit of transformative education, inspiring students to become global citizens who think critically, act ethically and serve responsibly.”

We are to search out the most good for our community and be prepared to learn and act in a way that treats our neighbors with love and respect. One doesn’t have to share the same religious views to understand the CSJ’s message of continuous learning and possessing the gusto to better ourselves…together. Only together can we overcome the challenges to our community.

Fontbonne was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, a group of Catholic nuns that had immigrated to St. Louis from France. They sought to teach their students the common good and inspire them to become people who think critically, ethically, and behave responsibly.

 

Being a student at Fontbonne and reading it’s mission statement allows me to follow in the footsteps of the founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. That means, I will learn to think critically, I will experience multi-cultural awareness, I will know how to act ethically in any situation and most importantly I will think of ways to serve others.

Fontbonne is a mission driven university! They care about others well being and expect the students to do the same. When you attend Fontbonne, it’s more about how can they assist you, the student which should in turn prompt you to think of how YOU, the student can assist others in the community. Fontbonne isn’t just about receiving but more about giving! I think that’s what the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet represented as well (unity).

Fontbonne Mission

by Mary on February 9, 2017

Let me first tell you what the mission statement is for this amazing university, as it has recently changed and is more concise now.

“Fontbonne University, a Catholic institution sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, is committed to the common good through the daily pursuit of transformative education, inspiring students to become global citizens who think critically, act ethically and serve responsibly.”

For me personally this is a statement that truly identifies our university and what the CSJ’s stand for as well as what they represent in this community.  As someone who has been involved in many service projects throughout the last three years at Fontbonne I know what it’s like to serve the dear neighbor without distinction and to treat others as if they are apart of the common good. I truly enjoy being there for others when I can whether it’s those in my campus community or those in the greater St. Louis community.  As a university Fontbonne really tries to instill in the focus on academic excellence and for the students to do their very best in the classroom and to not be afraid to as professors questions. Once I was able to get on that one-on-one level with teachers and really get to know them, then I felt they were inspiring me to demonstrate my best self.  Based on some of the things I have learned in class and things I have been involved in across campus I feel that professors truly are there to teach us how to fly into the world as educated global citizens.

As someone who grew up learning about the Catholic faith, I am proud to attend a Catholic institution and follow in the footsteps of the CSJ’s.  I am so thankful that I continued to stay involved in campus ministry throughout my time at this university, as it helped me to bond with others and grow in my faith.  Through ministry related events, I have had the opportunity to meet multiple of the sisters in my time here at Fontbonne and they all have interesting stories to tell about what it is like being a sister.  I am so proud to be able to say I am a Fontbonne student who practices my faith and am a part of a university sponsored by the Sister’s of St. Joseph of Carondolet.

Thanks for reading this weeks post.

Mission and Vision

..”inspiring students to become global citizens who think critically, act ethically and serve responsibly.” Wow what a mission statement. As I sit here enjoying my starbucks coffee and the rain lightly tapping on the window, I am filled with a sense of happiness that this mission statement, is the one of my college. What does this statement mean to me? Then, it got me thinking- what really is a mission statement? Sometimes life can get tough, and when you’re navigating a whole new chapter of your life- it can get REALLY tough. If you don’t know what you’re doing, or why you are doing it, life can become down right miserable. A mission statement is a personal reminder, a light to guide you when things get dark. It might be easy to simply shrug your shoulders and say your mission is to graduate, but it still doesn’t answer the root question of: why are you doing it? Fontbonne’s mission statement is not just a list of things the institution wants to accomplish, but who they are. This mission statement means to me that there is a greater purpose behind the tests, and quizzes, that there is growth, and opportunity. Fontbonne tells you through this statement that they will help you get the degree, but they will also do everything in their power to help their students grow into individuals who lead, love, and inspire. A mission statement that is created for a business, a college, or even your own personal statement, is intended to give people a better understanding of who you are, and what you stand for. As a student this mission statement means to me that there is purpose, and college is only just beginning, and Fontbonne college will provide me with the tools to take this adventure of life head on.
