Franciscan Mission Integration

Saint Francis University aims to be an academic institution where religion in general and Catholicism, in particular, are vitally present and operative across campus. This occurs when theological perspectives, ethical concerns, and faith-seeking understanding intersect with every subject area and academic discipline. Such integration fosters the education of the whole person, through academic and career-oriented learning as well as social, psychological, physical, moral, and spiritual/religious growth.

To achieve these goals, the Office of Mission Integration works with diverse groups, offices, departments, and divisions across campus to implement several objectives outlined in Ex corde Ecclesiae ("From the Heart of the Church"), which is an Apostolic Constitution issued by Pope John Paul II in 1990 describing the "identity and mission" of Catholic colleges and universities.


These objectives are:

  • to increase consideration of theological perspectives, ethical concerns, and Catholic teaching in curricular and co-curricular activities;
  • to foster the integration of knowledge across subject areas and academic disciplines; and
  • to promote conversations across campus between faith and reason in order to bear witness to the harmonious unity of all truth
  • to be of service to the people of God and the human family in their quest for transcendental goals which give meaning to life (Ex corde Ecclesiae, 1990, #12-20).
