Mission and Ministry

The division of Mission and Ministry communicates the mission and core values of the university to all members of the USD community.

As a Catholic university USD draws from the wisdom of its Catholic tradition and provides means for its members to grow in their understanding and expression of the Catholic faith.  It also welcomes persons of other faith traditions and those who hold no tradition.  Being a Catholic university it welcomes diversity and ecumenism and is pluralistic and inclusive.

By communicating its heritage, mission and core values and providing a comprehensive ministry program Mission and Ministry seeks to create a community in which intellectual and spiritual growth complement one another. Reason, a human gift, is regarded as compatible with faith – both seeking the truth.

Mission and Ministry seeks to provide the means for the members of its community to grow as a spiritual persons and to engage in the world with ethical values.
