The Division of University Mission and Ministry coordinates and develops the university-wide process of maintaining and promoting the distinctive academic and societal mission of Boston College as a Catholic and Jesuit university. It serves as a resource for existing programs that promote the Catholic and Jesuit identity of the University in areas such as academic affairs, student affairs, human resources, and university relations, and for the collaborative development of new programs in these areas.
