For Human Dignity (Hominis Dignitati)

Nanzan University is the only comprehensive, co-educational Catholic university in Japan’s Chubu region. Nanzan’s founding ideal was to provide education based on a Christian worldview to cultivate people to respect and advance human dignity. This ideal is embodied in the university’s motto of Hominis Dignitati, a Latin term which translates as “For Human Dignity”. Christianity teaches that humans were created by God with a “dignity” that is inviolable; each one of us has irreplaceable value and rights by virtue of being human. Nanzan’s motto encapsulates the idea of living with a firm grasp of and respect for this human dignity.
