CSS was founded in 1912 under the sponsorship of the Benedictine Sisters, with a mission of providing intellectual and moral preparation for responsible living and meaningful work within the context of Catholic Benedictine values. The founding Benedictine Sisters offered courses to a class of six women students on the stately and beautiful Duluth campus.  Today CSS programs are offered to more than 4,400 undergraduate and graduate students on the main campus in Duluth, as well as an online campus and satellite campuses in Brainerd, Cloquet, Hibbing, Grand Rapids, Inver Grove Heights, Rochester, Austin, St. Cloud, and St. Paul.  The guiding principles of the Benedictines run deep in the roots of life at CSS. The College’s mission is to develop thoughtful and engaged leaders, sharpened and sensitized by their educational experience who are prepared and committed to serving and transforming the world. The values at the heart of the College mission---community, hospitality, respect, stewardship, and love of learning---animate the college community experience.
