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.

Looking for someone to talk to?

University Ministry has campus ministers available to meet 1-on-1 with students who would like someone to talk to. These ministers are not psychologists, but on-campus professional staff who are trained to be mentors and advocates to support students on a variety of topics.

Need a mentor in your life to offer a listening ear?

UM is open to students of all faiths, students who are spiritual but not religious, and students who do not have any religious/spiritual involvement. If you’d like to find out more, please stop by our office or contact one of the campus ministers.

No one from CAPS available to talk right now?

Don’t worry. Our campus ministers are located in University Ministry (lower Toler, right near the entrance to the residence hall) and are waiting with open ears.

Someone for everyone...

Not sure who to chat with? Each individual has a varied range of experiences that they bring to offer you. With two Jesuit priests, our retreat director, director of resident ministry, and the director of UM available to you, we assure you that you’ll find someone capable of meeting your needs.
