Center for Mission and Identity

About the Center for Mission and Identity

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, 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.

By supporting our faculty and staff in realizing the Academic Vision and affirming the Jesuit tradition of pedagogical excellence, the Center for Mission and Identity ensures that students gain an education at Xavier University, as pledged by the Mission Statement, which prepares them to be people of outstanding competence and compassion.
