What are Pathways?
Pathways to Distinction are guided steps to achieving CSB and SJU’s Institutional Learning Goals. The distinctions—while challenging to earn—are not entirely based on GPA or coursework. Instead, they recognize your extraordinary development and accomplishments across a variety of academic, community-based, personal, leadership, global engagement, service and other experiences. In doing so, they embody the Benedictine Values and complement our Integrations Curriculum.
Each Pathway enables students to strategically decide how they want to stand out during their four years on campus. The distinction is earned by completing required and elective criteria during a student’s sophomore, junior and senior years on campus.
