About Cura


Cura is a grassroots effort created in response to input from SLU's faculty and staff members. It is here to empower and support all members of the SLU community as we build and sustain a positive workplace culture that helps us to be the University our mission calls us to be. The standards of the Cura program are simple:

  • Treat each other with dignity, compassion and respect
  • Treat all colleagues as equally important team members, regardless of job, role or title
  • Appreciate and understand the culture, humanity and differences of others
  • Build trust through open, honest communication, reliability and integrity
