Saint Louis University Division of Mission and Identity
The Saint Louis University Division of Mission and Identity is charged with furthering the understanding of the University's mission as a Jesuit and Catholic University for its faculty and staff.
A Jesuit education aims to form the whole person. As a Jesuit, Catholic university, Saint Louis University offers students a distinctive educational experience. Built on a spiritual, intellectual and social tradition almost five centuries old, SLU provides opportunities and an environment that encourages the full flourishing of our students in every aspect of their humanity.
The Division of Mission and Identity works to ensure the mission and core values of Saint Louis University are integrated into operations, structures, programs and practices. Through its programs and in collaboration with the colleges, schools, and departments of the university, the Division of Mission and Identity seeks to promote and encourage a deeper understanding of SLU’s foundation as a work of the Society of Jesus, and a ministry of the Catholic Church.
The academic life of the University reflects this mission as an integral part of its intellectual commitment to research and teaching excellence. The mission formation of students, faculty, staff, administration and board members is also a work of the Division of Mission and Identity.
