Safe Environment

Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology has a robust approach to creating a safe environment for students, employees and visitors. In addition to having had two Vatican visitations, we follow Praesidium guidelines for religious, Title IX and our own misconduct policy. All employees and seminarians are also required to do training and maintain active certification in accord with the policies of the Safe Environment Program of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Safe Environment policies and procedures are also regularly discussed in our seminarian formation program. Click HERE for more information regarding Safe Environment Training.
