A Jesuit school, the University of Scranton provides opportunities for learning that fit the idea of cura personalis, originated by the order’s founder, St. Ignatius of Loyola. Cura personalis is a Latin phrase meaning care of the whole person. St. Ignatius coined the phrase when he wrote a letter to one of the members of his order, encouraging him to take better care of his health.
As part of this mission to care for the whole person, the University of Scranton has begun planning a new center for rehabilitation education. The center will include the departments of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and exercise science. It will serve both graduate and undergraduate students, providing them with necessary training to become holistic and ethical practitioners.
