  • Inspired by the Sisters of the Divine Savior

    Inspired by our sponsors, the Sisters of the Divine Savior, an international congregation of more than 1,000 sisters ministering in 26 countries and on five continents, Salvatorian global scholars prepare for higher education and careers in which multi-language proficiency, knowledge, experience, and acceptance of diverse cultures are an asset.  In this program, students learn about world cultures, geography, history, science, language, literature, art, and religion in a world that is becoming more diverse and interdependent. 

    Scholars evolve as global citizens outside of the classroom through both co-curricular experiences and community or international service. Scholars promote awareness of global issues, appreciate diverse cultures, consider multiple sides of problems, and propose potential solutions to global issues. Salvatorian Global Scholars are liaisons between their home community and the world.

This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good.
