College of St. Benedict

The Benedictine values are the core beliefs behind St. Ben’s. They are the principles that the institution was founded on. According to the website of St Ben’s, “These values give us a set of practices for a life modeled on Jesus. They provide insight and support to alumni in building strong and caring family, civic and church communities, wherever life takes them.” These values are what lead members of the St. Ben’s community to live impactful and insightful lives. We love how Fair Trade can easily coincide with these values, and that is why we want to bring it to our campus.
