About Us

The Assistant to the President for Mission and Identity / Chief Mission Officer is responsible for promoting the active engagement of the Xavier University community in carrying out the mission of the University as a Jesuit, Catholic institution.  Reporting to the President, the Assistant serves on his Cabinet, the University Planning and Resourcing Council Advisory Committee, and is staff to the Jesuit Identity Committee of the Board of Trustees.

The Center for Mission and Identity engages faculty, staff and administrators in understanding Ignatian spirituality and Jesuit education as the foundation of the University's mission of forming students intellectually, morally, and spiritually as they cultivate lives of reflection, compassion and informed action.

The Center develops programs that help integrate Xavier's mission into the work of faculty, staff, and administrators, provides digital and print resources through www.jesuitresource.org, facilitates participation in national and consortium-based mission initiatives, and is the home of the Ruth J. and Robert A. Conway Institute for Jesuit Education.
