Faculty and Staff-Oriented Programs
The Office for Mission and Heritage (MH), in collaboration with faculty from various disciplines or with staff members from divisions across the University, offers several programs to further faculty or staff members' engagement with the Catholic and Mercy dimensions of Saint Xavier University. Among these programs are:
- Mercy Scholars, a program in which senior faculty members read and discuss texts related to faith, spirituality, religious tradition, and academic discipline in order to design courses or course units within their discipline that will engage students in questions of self, purpose, God, meaning, and social responsibility.
- ACCU and CMHE Engagements, opportunities for faculty members to attend and/or present at the national conferences of these, respectively, Catholic-centered and Mercy-focused organizations.
- First Friday Tea, a social occasion sponsored by Mission and Heritage four times per year with a short presentation on a topic connected to our Catholic and Mercy identity.
