Mission Integration

Mission Integration

As a Catholic institution founded by the Sisters of Mercy, Salve Regina welcomes people of all beliefs, seeking wisdom and promoting universal justice.

The Office of Mission Integration advances the mercy, Catholic mission of Salve Regina by partnering with students, faculty, staff, community partners, trustees and alumni in the classroom, on campus and in the community. Three areas comprise the work of the Office of Mission Integration: the Mercy Center for Spiritual Life, the Center for Community Engagement and Service and the McAuley Institute for Mercy Education.

In keeping with the traditions of the Sisters of Mercy, and recognizing that all people are stewards of God's creation, the University encourages students to work for a world that is harmonious, just and merciful.


Mercy Center for Spiritual Life

The Mercy Center for Spiritual Life encourages students to build community, to deepen their faith, to engage in service, to seek justice and to become leaders formed by mercy.

Center for Community Engagement and Service

The Center for Community Engagement and Service seeks to address the expressed needs of our local and global community, advancing the common good, experiential learning and the critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy.

McAuley Institute for Mercy Education

The McAuley Institute for Mercy Education advances the vocation of the University by fostering an ethic of interdisciplinary dialogue and action around the tradition and critical concerns of mercy and contributes to the development of mercy, Catholic higher education in the 21st century.


Now more than ever, it is imperative that every person put their best foot forward to heal our ailing environment, not just for our own sake, but for the sake of our global neighbors.
