MISSION STATEMENT St. Norbert Dining Services’ philosophy is to provide an atmosphere of belonging, creating an environment for exceptional service and quality. Stimulate and support growth of our department and its individuals. In keeping with the College’s mission, Dining Services will help to mentor the student population, helping future generations to reach their full potential.
St. Norbert College is an institution of higher education founded on the principles of the Catholic Christian heritage as embodied in the Norbertine community. At the heart of the Catholic Christian tradition is the affirmation of the immeasurable value and sacred dignity of the human person. This affirmation is a cornerstone of the Norbertine mission to form community. St. Norbert College constantly strives to uphold the dignity of every person and to confront challenges to that dignity. The College realizes the potential exists for abuses of human dignity. It will not tolerate inappropriate use of power or authority by its members, nor does the College condone any other violation of Human dignity. St. Norbert College addresses violations of human dignity through a variety of procedures, such as those dealing with sexual harassment, freedom of expression, and hazing. These procedures are defined by behavioral policies governing the conduct of its members. Infractions of these policies are handled through the College's judicial structures. Procedures emphasizing the importance of human dignity and practices which promote appropriate respect for individuality and basic human rights are intended to encourage the St. Norbert College community to incorporate such values into interactions with all persons, whether members of St. Norbert College or the larger community. By doing so, St. Norbert College continues a tradition which is essential to a St. Norbert education. Human Dignity Statement
