Aquinas College is a private, Catholic, non-residential four year liberal arts college owned and administered by the Dominican Sisters of the Congregation of St. Cecilia.  The mission is to provide an atmosphere of learning permeated with faith, directed to the intellectual, moral and professional formation of the human person; and to foster intellectual achievement and personal growth in a socially and economically diverse population.  Through this Impacting Education grant, Aquinas College will conduct a six-part seminar series titled, "Inspiring the Values of Life and Love in Health Care."  The goal of the program is to elevate the importance of ethical and compassionate nursing care, to strengthen the faculty's knowledge and understanding, and to enhance their ability to teach and model holistic, loving care to students.  This program will be institutionalized through the offering of one-credit hour course on ethical, compassionate care in the ASN & RN to BSN curriculum in the 2007 academic year.
