Culture of Discovery

St. Thomas More College (STM) fosters a culture of discovery.

The STM Academic Administrative Assistant (AAA) provides our researchers with assistance.

To recognize the work of professors and researchers who in their professional labors seek to integrate their specific disciplines with philosophy and theology, because they recognize that “if scientific rationality becomes the only trusted form of knowledge, many vital questions for the human person will then be left out. The meaning of reality, and of science itself, is not the object of positivistic sciences but of the humanities, of philosophy and of theology. Widening the horizons of scientific rationality means to place man again in an important role as subject and beneficiary of the sciences.” (Fr. Lombardi)
