President, Mount Mary University

“Mount Mary’s notion of transformative education is rooted in the very essence of what it means to be an SSND. The sisters’ constitution, You Are Sent, clearly states, ‘Like Mother Theresa, we educate with the conviction that the world can be changed through the transformation of persons.’”
