About the Mission Council
The Mission Council is charged with providing leadership to the campus community and counsel to the President on the vision for, quality of, and extent to which we as a community support Catholic Social Teaching and the works of Vincent dePaul, Mother Elizabeth Seton and Louise de Marillac in our work together, with and on behalf of our students and also those who visit the campus.
The Council recommends and develops programs, assesses our strength of commitment to action across the campus and constituencies, and advances the Gospel as a way of being for all.
