Founded by Loyola University Chicago in 2015, Arrupe College is a two-year program that continues the Jesuit tradition of offering a rigorous liberal arts education to a diverse population, many of whom are the first in their families to pursue higher education. Using an innovative model that ensures affordability while providing care for the whole person—intellectually, morally, and spiritually—Arrupe prepares its graduates to continue on to a bachelor’s program or move into meaningful employment. From the beginning, cura personalis has been a priority at this new institution. In this article, drawing on their experience as faculty members and administrators at Arrupe College, Julia Bninski and Jennifer Boyle argue for expanding the definition of cura personalis to include not only individual decisions and behavior, but also institutional policies and procedures.
