Resident Ministry

As a reflection of the university's commitment to caring for each student and for offering resources for each student's holistic development, Resident Ministers live in and serve the communities in the Residence Halls. At least one Resident Minister is assigned to each Residential Living Area where they are responsible for fostering community, spirituality, and hospitality.

Resident Ministers make the connection between Residential Life and University Ministry and seek to integrate the programs and services of University Ministry into the residence halls.

Resident Ministers are available to:

  • Talk with students... about anything.
  • Provide opportunities for balance and stress relief, reflection and prayer.
  • Lead faith-sharing group to explore meaning in the context of university life.
  • Encourage and animate community service activities.
  • Connect students with all the helpful organizations and resources at USD and beyond.

Resident Ministers are students' allies and confidantes, available to answer questions about everything from faith and spirituality to stress, relationships, and decision-making.
