About the College Seal: The Griffin, Lilies and a Book

From The Chestnut Hill College Website

The College Seal, chosen in May of 1928, was adapted from the ancient family coat-of-arms of Henri de Maupas, Bishop of LePuy, France, the first ecclesiastical superior of the Sisters of Saint Joseph, who canonically approved the order on March 10, 1961.

The Griffin

A silver carpenter’s square (the symbol of St. Joseph) and a heraldic mount, which symbolizes the consecration of the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph to the Most Holy Trinity, were added to the Maupas shield (a gold griffin on a scarlet background).

The griffin, a combination of eagle and lion, is a fabulous heraldic animal. In ecclesiastical heraldry, the eagle is symbol of St. John; the lion, a symbol of St. Mark.

Lilies and a Book

In the “chief” (upper portion) are the lilies of Our Lady and St. Joseph, and in the center, a book, traditional heraldic emblem of a seat of learning. On its open pages is the College motto: Fides – Caritas – Scientia (Faith – Charity – Knowledge).

Mission Statement

In accord with Chestnut Hill College’s mission to provide a holistic education in an inclusive Catholic community marked by academic excellence, Logue Library proposes to offer the college community excellent information services by means of all appropriate media. The library staff has the primary responsibility for designing, developing, organizing and maintaining the collection, services, and facilities that support this effort.

Librarians share with other members of the college community the responsibility for the education of students as independent, ethical information seekers and critical thinkers.  They advance this duty by providing welcoming spaces for intellectual discovery and by promoting the innovative adoption of emerging learning technologies as budgets permit.

To accomplish this, they value exceptional customer service, inclusiveness and respect for the individual, collaboration and creativity in serving each patron as well as accountability for actions and decisions.
