About Mission and Ministry

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Mission and Ministry continues to serve the university community. Please visit our Resources page for a comprehensive list of offerings for remaining connected and engaging faith and spirituality.

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, the University of San Diego 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.
