Awards Ceremony at center of Mission Day on Wed., March 20

The Saint Xavier University community will celebrate Mission Day this Wed., March 20.

The centerpiece of the day will be the 3:30 p.m. Awards Ceremony in the Fourth Floor Board Room. At that ceremony, the Saint Xavier community will honor faculty member Dr. Peter Hilton, staff member Therese Johnson, and student Kelly Mihalik with the University’s three prestigious service awards. A congratulatory reception will follow in the Butler Reception Room.

All students, staff members, and faculty members are invited to attend the Awards Ceremony to share their congratulations with the award recipients and to deepen their own appreciation of and commitment to the University’s mission.

Such appreciation and commitment are at the heart of SXU’s annual observance of Mission Day.  Attention focuses on the University’s fundamental and enduring identity and purpose:

Saint Xavier University, a Catholic institution inspired by the

heritage of the Sisters of Mercy, educates men and women

to search for truth, to think critically, to communicate

effectively, and to serve wisely and compassionately

in support of human dignity and the common good.

That mission, lived by faculty and staff in each class and every meeting, keeps Saint Xavier a student-focused and service-oriented institution.

Mission Day is coordinated by the Office for University Mission and Heritage in collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs, the Staff Council, the Provost’s Office, the Office of Special Events, and Chartwells Catering.
