The mission statement of the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) reads as follows: ‘Inspired by Catholic intellectual tradition, The University of St. Thomas educates students to be morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely, and work skillfully to advance the common good.’ The Catholic university founded in 1885 by Archbishop John Ireland emphasizes values-based education and career preparation, and because of its location in the central cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis helps solve community problems through education and ambitious volunteer and service-learning programs. This is necessary, according to the Rev. Dennis Dease, president, because as an urban university St. Thomas must not be only ‘in the city’ but also ‘of the city.’
