Hiring for Mission

The Center for Mission and Identity has developed a Hiring and Orientation for Mission Program. This is a more intentional process with a deliberate strategy to enhance our mission and Catholic and Benedictine identity. The goals of the new program are to:

  1. Better delineate expectations of all faculty and staff, regardless of religious orientation, to be knowledgeable of and support the Catholic mission of the University.
  2. Hire individuals whose philosophy aligns with our Catholic Benedictine tradition and values.
  3. Extend a familiarity with the intellectual habits and resources within the Catholic intellectual tradition, Catholic social teaching, and the Benedictine wisdom tradition.
  4. Provide Catholic, non-Catholic Christian, non-Christian University employees and those of no faith with the opportunity to contribute to the “intellectual landscape” in which serious moral and religious questions can be addressed; and to enter into dialogue with one another in order to understand that which unites our traditions and to respect that which is distinct.
  5. Instill an appreciation of the institution’s responsibility to serve the Catholic Church.
  6. Create opportunities for each employee’s professional, academic and spiritual growth.
