Mission

Campus Ministry assists and supports members of the Alverno community on their faith journey. Faith development and spirituality are treated as integral and life-long components of each person’s total wellness.

Members of the Alverno community are diverse in their faith, spirituality and denominational affiliations, which influences worship services, events and programs to reflect inclusivity while drawing inspiration from a Catholic, Franciscan framework.

What We Do

With care and enthusiasm, Campus Ministry seeks to contribute to the future of Alverno as a place where quality traditions are created and anticipated. Our goal is to use Franciscan hospitality as the basis for building bridges of knowledge, understanding and appreciation among people of all faiths who comprise the Alverno community. We believe in:

  • Supporting members of the Alverno community on their spiritual journey and in their expressions of faith
  • Discovering and affirming the spiritual in all of life
  • Ritualizing and celebrating life events in ways that honor people’s deepest-held beliefs
  • Creating an atmosphere of safety, openness, trust and respect
  • Integrating the Alverno Abilities of Communication, Problem Solving, Valuing in Decision Making, Developing a Global Perspective and Aesthetic Engagement into programs, events and internal staff relationships
  • Working collaboratively and cooperatively with departments, student organizations and individuals to create sustainable traditions

Campus Ministry focuses on developing enriching events in each of its four main outreach categories — Spiritual, Service, Social and Educational.
