The purpose of the Office of Mission Integration is to promote and strengthen the values of our mission while celebrating our Catholic identity as a university sponsored by the Sisters of Charity.

The office will work hand in hand with Campus Ministry and the Mission Committee while developing new mission initiatives campus wide and serving as a resource for mission awareness within departments.

Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry is an integral component to Mission Integration through its role in ministering to the students.  More information about Campus Ministry
