Board of Trustees Statement on Our Catholic Identity

The Board of Trustees reasserts the critical importance of the Catholic identity in all operations of the University. A strong Catholic identity is central to the mission of Mount St. Mary's University. Therefore, all faculty, staff, administrators, executive officers and trustees are to work in concert with and support this Catholic mission.

The basic tenets of this Catholic mission at Mount St. Mary's University include:

  2. The University fully understands, respects and follows the teachings of the Catholic Church.
  3. The University is in full compliance with both the letter and spirit of Ex Corde Ecclesiae.
  4. The University recognizes the authority of the Holy See and the authority vested in the Archbishop of Baltimore regarding the Catholic nature and direction of Mount St. Mary's University.
