The St. Mary’s Way
As a member of St. Mary's College of Maryland, I accept the St. Mary's Way and agree to join in working with others to develop this College as a community:
Where people respect the natural environment and the tradition of tolerance which is the heritage of this place
Where people cultivate a life-long quest for disciplined learning and creativity
Where people take individual responsibility for their work and actions
Where people foster relationships based upon mutual respect, honesty, integrity, and trust
Where people are engaged in an ongoing dialogue that values differences and the unique contributions of others’ talents, backgrounds, customs, and world views
Where people are committed to examining and shaping the functional, ethical values of our changing world
Where people contribute to a spirit of caring and an ethic of service.
Welcome to St. Mary’s
By choosing to join this community, I accept the responsibility of helping to build on its past heritage, of living its ideals, and contributing to its future.
