The Marymount Institute preserves the transformative educational tradition of the RSHM and promotes dialogue between faith and culture as expressed in the fine, performing, literary and communication arts.

The Institute provides both a place and a context in which interdisciplinary research, teaching, and convivial conversation can take place. The Institute is wide-ranging and inclusive in scope - it is defined by the educational ideals of a Marymount and Jesuit education that include:

  • The fierce pursuit of intellectual excellence
  • An unwavering commitment to social justice
  • The promotion of transformative teaching
  • The sustenance of rich, trans-national, and diverse communities of thinkers, artists, writers and leaders.

The Institute encourages the involvement of women faculty, and students, and religious in order to nourish and support and the role of women on campus and beyond in the 21st Century.
