"Cura Personalis" is a Latin phrase that translates as "Care of the Entire Person". It is an expression commonly used by the Catholic Church religious order, the Society of Jesus. Originally used to describe the responsibility of the Jesuit Superior to care for each man in the community with his unique gifts, challenges, needs and possibilities, this value now is applied more broadly to include the relationship between educators and students and professional relationships among all those who work in the academic (usually university) environment. “Cura Personalis” suggests individualized attention to the needs of the other, distinct respect for his or her unique circumstances and concerns, and an appropriate appreciation for his or her particular gifts and insights.
