How it Started
In 2010, a group of Saint Vincent College faculty, administrators and Benedictine monks joined with the Student Affairs office to assess the climate on the campus regarding relationships and dating, and to ascertain clear areas of need.
From those efforts, we have created a programming model that is used to support our students in their efforts to create and establish healthy, lasting relationships. This Healthy Relationships Initiative now includes a for-credit course, a weekend retreat, Residence Life staff training, orientation events and other presentations and programs through the academic year.
Through the Healthy Relationship programming, during which Church teaching is presented, students are discussing, arguing, comparing, considering and, finally, deciding how to best move forward in light of that teaching.
