Understanding concepts such as social responsibility, personal accountability, and reverence for all creation is central to the Franciscan vision of what it means to be an educated person. The mission of the Mission and Ministry unit is to provide for the holistic development of the University community through opportunities for continued understanding and deeper appreciation of our Catholic, Franciscan mission values.

Meet our staff members, become familiar with the activities offered through the Neumann Institute for Franciscan Studies, the Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development, and through Campus Ministry. Join us for our daily and or weekend liturgy celebration. Also, enjoy the opportunities for retreats, evenings of reflection, and outreach programs to the under served. As a community, we enthusiastically share our talents, gifts and knowledge in the service of others.
