Programs for Faculty and Staff

In its programming, Mission and Ministry seeks to provide the means for members of the USD community to grow as spiritual persons and to engage the world with ethical values.

All faculty and staff are invited to join us for Faculty/Staff Morning Retreat once each semester. We will offer a  presentation and participants are invited to reflect on how to integrate their personal and professional lives. In the fall semester, all employees are invited to participate in a Gratefulness Group, which is offered over seven lunchtime sessions in September. In the spring, everyone in the campus community is invited to participate in the Lenten Retreat which takes place during the six weeks leading up to Easter.

People of any religious background are invited to participate in these programs. All are welcome.
