Service - We reach out in charity, justice and mercy to provide for the needs of God’s People and uphold the dignity of God’s Creation.

Stewardship – We empower disciples to use their gifts of time, talent and treasure in service to the campus, the Church and the world.
Servant Leadership Development – We equip all who are called to serve and lead with opportunities for personal, relational and Christ-centered growth.
Model of Ministry
We serve one Eucharistic community of faith united in our Mission,Vision and Core Values. We offer a diverse and perpetual community family in an ever-changing academic setting.
In an ongoing effort to be strategically focused on how we live out our mission, vision and values, the Newman Center, under the direction of Fr. Ed Nowak, C.S.P., held several focus groups in the fall of 2018. The feedback from these focus groups informed the development of the 2019 Newman Center Community Survey. This survey was promoted and completed in February 2019. A staff team poured over the comments and analyzed the results. In June 2019 the following survey results summary was published.
