Dignitas, a year-long common experience for first-year traditional students, is an introduction to The College of St. Scholastica: who we are, what we stand for, and how to find a place in this community. Dignitas provides a framework for the entire college experience by introducing the key components of a Scholastica education: community, reflection, intellectual challenge, and social justice. In keeping with our emphasis on community, in the Dignitas program, students remain with the same small group of students and faculty for the year as they explore an intellectually challenging subject, participate in cocurricular activities, and become integrated into the St. Scholastica community. Additional information on the Dignitas program is included in the General Education description earlier in the catalog.
The two courses are:
Dignitas 1101 The Responsible Self, fall semester (2 cr.)
Dignitas 1102 And Dignity for All, spring semester (2 cr.)
