Academic life at Villanova, focused on undergraduate, graduate and continuing education, on discovery and learning, is inspired by the rich heritage of the University’s history and mission, and is grounded in our Catholic-Augustinian commitment to holistic education aimed at “transforming minds and hearts.” These values are the basis for our Educational Goals and Objectives.
