Integrative Learning and the ILP at Salve Regina University


“All the branches of knowledge are connected together, because the subject matter of knowledge is intimately united in itself, as being the great Creator and His works.”

“True enlargement of mind is the power of viewing many things at once as one whole, of referring them severally to their true place in the universal system, of understanding their respective values, and determining their mutual dependence.”

John Henry Cardinal Newman
