Department of Theology

Mission and Vision Statements


Mission Statement: 

The mission of the Theology Department is to provide students with resources from Christian and other religious/spiritual traditions for constructing lives of personal meaning and purpose. Inspired by our Jesuit Catholic identity and mission, we educate students to be knowledgeable, reflective, morally wise, and dialogical as they engage the critical needs of our complex and interdependent world in service of the common good.


Vision Statement: 

Embracing our core Jesuit values and commitment to academic excellence, the Xavier University Department of Theology prepares students to be transformative leaders in their communities by engaging sources of wisdom, courage, compassion, and solidarity from Catholic, ecumenical, and interfaith perspectives.
