is a place for seekers.

Since 1917, PC has taken pride in being a Catholic and Dominican institution of higher education — one for those who seek truth, celebrate the relationship between faith and reason, and pursue these values in a loving, diverse, and inclusive community.

Here, we believe you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Seek Truth

In the Catholic and Dominican tradition, truth is not just a collection of unrelated propositions or disembodied ideas. It is an integrated way of life. We seek understanding not only for its own sake, but because we believe that the truth informs us about our place in the world and orients us towards that good life which all men and women desire.
