Dr. Paul Datti has a deep appreciation for the capable and caring students who study in the Panuska College of Professional Studies. He admires their passion and motivation to make a difference in the world, as they seek to live out the Jesuit values of excellence, justice and service.

On academic excellence 

“Panuska College upholds the highest academic standards for our students. We require rigorous coursework coupled with service learning. No matter what the major, service learning is a requirement, which is somewhat unique to our college. By putting theory to practice in the community, our students gain invaluable experience and perspective.” 

On practical learning

“In addition to service learning, many of our programs require internships, practicals
or other fieldwork. We’re also a college that values student-faculty collaboration
on research, even at the undergraduate level. And many of our students study abroad,
taking classes and providing services in various countries.”

On preparation for success

“Our graduates have outstanding employment rates and exceptional acceptance rates
to graduate and professional schools. It’s a testament to the excellence of our programs, our college and our students.”
