Center for Ursuline Education

About our Center

The Educational Philosophy of Wenzao is inherited from the educational tradition of the Roman Union of the Order of St. Ursula. St. Angela, the foundress of the Ursulines, was a visionary in the field of education. St. Angela successfully integrated faith into human formation. She believed that each individual was an image of God, with unique value and dignity. She also believed everyone has infinite potential and an indispensable mission. The purpose of education is to guide students to gradually develop and extend their God-given potential.

In order to develop the philosophy of Ursuline Education, “Spiritual Service Center” was expanded into “Ursuline Education Center” (UEC) in August 2011. UEC is named after the Order of Saint Ursula. The center is in charged of whole person education curricula and spiritual guidance.

Teachers in UEC are specialized in philosophy, education, religious study, psychology, pastoral counseling, psychotherapy etc. We integrate whole person education curricula and spiritual guidance to serve staff and faculty in Wenzao.

Moral Formation: Introduction to Wenzaorian Spirit

The series of compulsory courses is designed for all students in the 5-Year Junior College, focusing on the physical, mental and spiritual development and their integration. There are different themes, such as self-discovery, interpersonal relationships, multiple intelligences and learning styles, career planning, ethical speculation, service leadership and spiritual nourishment, organized systematically according to the needs of student development in different years.  By encouraging wider and deeper self-reflection in students year by year, the course aims to foster their healthy personality.

The course content of the freshman year responds to one of the three core competencies (3L)—Life, concerning the dimension of developing students’ potential, and fostering the ability of solidarity and self-discipline.

The course of this semester focuses on the learning and application of non-violent communication.  Through instructors’ guidance, small group discussions, and after-class practice, students could become Wenzaorians who are compassionate listeners and communicators, which would in turn lay a solid foundation for a group life.

Students will be able to:

  1. being conscious of one’s own psychological states, such as one’s internal observations, feelings, needs, and requests.
  2. being conscious of other’s psychological states, such as other’s internal observations, feelings, needs, and requests.
  3. establishing compassionate modes of communication among the self and others.
