University Ministry

University Ministry creates opportunities for University of San Francisco students, faculty, staff, and alumni to explore principles of Ignatian spirituality and apply them to their studies, careers, and personal lives.

University Ministry Center for Ignatian Spirituality

University Ministry inspires members of the USF community to experience inner freedom, realize the fullness of their humanity, and live lives of hope, passion, integrity, and purpose.

We embrace and celebrate the richness of the Catholic faith and heritage of USF. At the same time, we welcome and encourage people of all faiths, as well as those with no religious traditions, to join with us in creating an inclusive learning community that is reflective and authentic in its search for meaning and truth.

In the Jesuit tradition, we challenge women and men to be contemplatives in action who:

  • Engage in experiences that challenge their perceptions
  •  Reflect with thoughtful attention to the influence and meaning of these experiences
  • Allow their discernment to shape and transform our purpose in the world
  • Actively develop relationships of compassion, justice, and advocacy
