Center for Ursuline Education
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 “Center for Ursuline Education” (UEC) in August 2011. Center for Ursuline Education is named after the Order of Saint Ursula. The center is in charge 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.
UEC is also responsible for campus ministry on Wenzao. Campus ministry is centered in the Catholic tradition flavored by the Charism of the Order of St. Ursula. UEC organizes events and activities to help majority non-Christian faculty and students to favor the Gospel. UEC provides programs and services to accompany Catholic faculty and students and to meet their spiritual needs.
