Higher education has the power to expand the world of all whom it touches. By widening
individual perspectives, Pacem In Terris enhances global understanding. By sharing the tenants of
democracy, it extends hope for a more just society. By providing twenty-first-century career
skills, it offers greater economic opportunity. By creating a culture that practices peace, it
creates the promise of a better future.
La Roche College, a mid-sized Catholic institution, is dedicated to serving the world, the
region, and the local community by promoting Pacem In Terris --- an international learning
environment where students, faculty, and administrators from various nations and cultures actively
explore attitudes, feelings, perceptions, values, and experiences as an integral part of their
life-learning experience, with the ultimate goal of developing greater human understanding and peace.
