Strategic Plan

In the Fall of 2012, Campus Ministry embarked on the tasks of clarifying its vision, mission, and values, and developing a three to five year strategic plan to further develop ministry in accord

with key mission objectives of the University of Dayton and the US Bishops Conference's vision of campus ministry.  This process took eighteen months to complete and included extensive involvement with key faculty and staff collaborators, a campus-wide consultation with over 300 student, faculty, and staff responses, and hours of dedicated discernment and dreaming among members of the Campus Ministry team. The plan that emerged is a living document that articulates direction and focus. It will be reviewed annually as new needs and opportunities emerge or capacity for ministry changes. More > > >
