The Mission of the Center is to provide education and remembrance of the Holocaust and other genocides, to facilitate Catholic/Jewish dialogue and interfaith understanding, and to do so with high academic and scholarly standards, as well as standards consistent with the teachings of Vatican Council II.
The Center aims to provide a variety of programs, courses, resources, and other educational opportunities to CSE undergraduate and graduate students and the community, as well as for teachers to enable them to help their own students meet the New Jersey State mandate for education about the Holocaust and genocide.
