Institute for Research of Christian Culture(IRCC)

St. Julie Billiart

This institute focuses on religious studies with a special concentration on Christianity, namely Christian cultures and humanity from a Christian perspective. The aim of the IRCC is to aid students in understanding the spirit of the foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, St. Julie Billiart, and by extension, to cultivate an appreciation of the founding spirit of our university.Toward these aims, the IRCC offers students classes in “Christian Studies,” which cover philosophy, culture and literature related to Christianity, Europe and Japan. The IRCC also hosts various activities, including open lectures on the Bible, and is responsible for traditional Christian ceremonies, for such as, thanksgiving mass for the new school year, Christmas mass, and Baccalaureate mass at graduation.
