Aquinas College

Aquinas College, an inclusive educational community rooted in the Catholic Dominican tradition, provides a liberal arts education with a global perspective, emphasizes career preparation focused on leadership and service to others, and fosters a commitment to lifelong learning dedicated to the pursuit of truth and the common good. Founded by the Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids in 1886, Aquinas has a Catholic heritage in the Dominican tradition of working and serving as outlined in the Dominican Charisms of prayer, service, study, and community. This tradition is lived out by Aquinas students who volunteer their time and talents in the Grand Rapids community and by those who travel to places such as the Dominican Republic or any of several other service-learning locations. That educational heritage continues at Aquinas each year as approximately 2,100 students register for classes in both its undergraduate and graduate programs, which encompass 61 majors including signature programs in Sustainable Business and Conductive Education. Insignis, an undergraduate honors program, offers high-achieving students academic challenges that encourage them to rise to their intellectual potential. The program also provides cultural and social enrichment activities at little or no cost.
