The Office of Mission and Catholic Identity at Sacred Heart University has as its primary purpose the articulation, promotion and transmission of Catholic Intellectual and Spiritual Traditions. Flowing from the mission, core values and living history of the University, Mission and Catholic Identity seeks to prepare men and women to live in and make contributions to the human community.
The Office runs programs for Faculty Development in Catholic Intellectual Traditions that include the Presidential Seminar as well as Faculty Conversations. In addition, it serves as a resource for community and academic engagement in issues at the intersection of faith and culture through public lectures, panels, publications and discussion on a local, national and international level. The Office serves as a liaison and partner for diocesan initiatives in education, spirituality, health care and youth ministry.
