Guided by the vision of the Brothers of Christian Instruction and the mission and goals of Walsh University, Campus Ministry provides programs geared toward faith formation, spiritual practices, community service, community building, and leadership development. Campus Ministry works with the Chaplain's office to coordinate liturgical services and provide pastoral care to other departments of the University and area Church leaders.
Campus Ministry's learning objectives are that:
- Students will be able to express and share the value of faith fostered in the Catholic learning community by growing in knowledge and challenging others through word and witness.
- Students will learn and develop effective leadership skills grounded in the Gospel value of service.
- Students will be able to understand local and global issues and demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of diversity in the light of their faith by scrutinizing the signs and the times and interpret them in light of the Gospel.
- Students will exercise their civic responsibility through the lens of peace and justice.
- Students will be able to develop a transformative prayer life that will form and inform their praxis as servant leaders and aspiring professionals.
