Saint Louis University's Office of Mission and Identity partners with institutions on campus and in the community to improve the lives of people around the world.
Campus Ministry supports the mission of the University in the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity. It welcomes all, regardless of faith traditions. Campus Ministry encourages students to explore their spirituality, engage with SLU campus ministers and participate in programs.
Circle of Hope Prayer Group
The Division of Diversity and Innovative Community Engagement (DICE) and the Division
for Mission and Identity invite faculty and staff to join the Circle of Hope, a weekly
prayer group gathering. (#CommunityofPrayer #WeSeeYou).
The group is open to people of all faiths and meets to pray for the needs of the SLU community on Tuesday mornings, 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., in the Mary Bruemmer Room of DuBourg Hall; and the first and third Thursdays of the month on South Campus.
Helping Our Own
Helping Our Own, funded by employees of Saint Louis University to benefit employees of Saint Louis University, was created to offer that assistance. This program provides a one-time monetary gift to any full-time or part-time permanent SLU employee experiencing a valid financial crisis. Eligibility for assistance requires at least one year of employment with the University.
Mission Formation for Faculty and Staff
SLU's Division of Mission and Identity helps build community in the Ignatian Tradition on introductory, deeping, immersive and fluency levels. We also offer pastoral care and support, mission events and other ongoing opportunities for faculty and staff to become involved in mission formation.
Mission Priority Examen
Starting in 2018, 30 listening sessions were held throughout campus with more than 700 participants to identify the strengths and weaknesses of our mission effectiveness, evaluate our current mission priorities, and determine appropriate goals for improvement. The results of the campus meetings were compiled and a report was written by the committee and sent to an external visiting team.
