HIM Leadership: Benedictine Values and their Influence in Growing Great Leaders

The College of Saint Scholastica's mission is based on values from our Benedictine Heritage including community, hospitality, respect, stewardship and love of learning. CSS has the oldest HIM program in the country and has been a front-runner in curriculum and textbook development, online learning and master's education in HIIM. The underlying Benedictine culture of Scholastica provide a solid foundation for creating leaders and CSS has graduated many local, state and national HIM leaders. The five key values on which its mission and vision are based naturally creates an environment conducive to leadership development. In this discussion, we'll delve into CSS's mission, its Benedictine heritage and why it so successfully prepares today's and tomorrow's HIM leaders.
