Mission & Vision Statements

Student Affairs Mission Statement

Informed by our Jesuit tradition and in the context of a residential environment, the Division of Student Affairs provides opportunities for students to develop intellectually, psychologically, socially, spiritually, culturally, morally, physically, and vocationally. As educators, we engage students—through our programs and services—to develop knowledge and strategies which enable them to live purposeful and balanced lives. We teach students to exercise leadership in service to others, and to participate in and promote a diverse community characterized by caring and respect for the worth and dignity of every human being. Through shared responsibility with all members of the College community, we foster an environment in which the pursuit of excellence and continuous improvement permeate our efforts. Consistent with the College Mission Statement, Student Affairs aspires to educate students to become exemplary citizens who apply their talents and abilities in service, faith, family, and community.
