Working in higher education enables sisters to impart Benedictine values to the next generation of professionals. S. Kathryn Burt reflects that “One of the greatest gifts of being an educator is observing the growth of another individual towards becoming who God is calling them to be.”
Sisters are currently teaching in the education, religious studies, nursing, English, math, music and art departments, and also work as staff members at Mount Marty College, a sponsored ministry of the Yankton Benedictines. S. Lynn Osika is Assistant Librarian, S. Maribeth Wentzlaff is Director of Campus Ministry, and S. Erin Colgan, a lawyer, is the Compliance Officer. Sisters have also worked at other area colleges; Sister Rose Marie Maly is currently director of the Newman Center at the University of Nebraska—Kearney.
Sister Candyce Chrystal engages students as they formulate their philosophy of teaching.
