Mission Statement

University Ministry (UM) supports the spiritual, religious and pastoral needs of the University of San Francisco (USF) community. We enrich the USF experience by creating communities grounded in Ignatian spirituality and the Jesuit Catholic mission of USF. UM programs and services encourage USF students, faculty, staff and alumni of all religious backgrounds or none, to connect their faith, spirituality and values with an active engagement in the world, especially with economically poor and systematically oppressed communities, in order to realize the fullness of their humanity, and lead lives of meaning and purpose.
