2015-16 Wisdom Print Page



From the University’s Seal:

The Latin phrase “Sapientia Aedificavit Sibi Domum” appears at the bottom of Rockhurst Unviersity’s seal.  From Proverbs 9:1, in English, this verse reads “Wisdom Has Built Herself a Home.” 

Rooted in our Catholic Jesuit identity, the University is committed to learning and, therefore, strives:

·         To learn about all aspects of this God-charged world.

·         To create an environment that values and champions the search for and communication of knowledge.

·         To examine the moral and ethical implications present in each discipline and program.

·         To view religious experience and religious questions as integral to the understanding of human existence and human culture.

·         To foster love of the world that leads to the desire to create a better and more just existence.

Pedagogical Paradigm

Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm:

With its emphasis on experience and recognition of the vital import of reflecting on such experiences, Ignatian Pedagogy seeks to produce wisdom, not simply knowledge.  Often articulated as “Experience – Reflection – Action,” the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm can also be described as “Encounter – Integration – Wisdom.”  The diagram to the right expands the three components to five: Context, Experience, Reflection, Action and Evaluation.
