Mission, Vision and Covenant
Based on our commitment of service to others, we improve health and well-being locally, nationally and internationally through unique interdisciplinary approaches that inspire students, generate knowledge and engage individuals and communities.
Consistent with the Jesuit tradition of Saint Louis University, the College for Public Health & Social Justice continually strives for excellence in scholarship through nationally and internationally recognized performance in teaching, research and service.
The core of our mission is to seek truth, but as a Catholic, Jesuit institution we acknowledge that simply seeking truth is not enough. The methods we use to discover truth, the ends for which it is sought, and the ways in which it illuminates the world further are all essential aspects of our mission.
