"There is something holy, something divine, hidden in the most ordinary situations, and it is up to each of you to discover it" Saint Josemaría Escrivá, Founder of Opus Dei
Opus Dei & the University
The founders of Pan-Atlantic University were inspired in beginning this educational project by the teachings of the founder of Opus Dei. Furthermore, the Prelature of Opus Dei provides the spiritual and pastoral means necessary in order that the University may maintain and develop its Christian identity. The Prelature of Opus Dei takes responsibility for guaranteeing that all teaching, publishing and research activities in PAU are inspired by the Christian view of the person, the world and society, and seeks a coherent union between faith, thought and life.
The Christian inspiration of the Pan-Atlantic University moves it to promote student participation in activities of solidarity, and teaches them to dedicate part of their time to those most in need. In this way they gain consciousness of their responsibility to serve society with their future work.
