CBU | Mission & Identity

Mission & Identity

Christian Brothers University is a Catholic university founded on the heritage of Lasallian education. While large enough to provide educational opportunities in the arts, business, education, engineering and sciences, the University is small enough to promote teaching as ministry and to provide challenging student-centered learning and personal growth. Students of diverse cultures and religious traditions are encouraged to grow in their own faith. The University welcomes students into an educational community of faith and service, one that is committed to academic excellence, the betterment of society and the care of God’s creation.

The Office of Mission & Identity is responsible for safeguarding and promoting the Core Values of the University and its Lasallian Educational Principles. 

CORE VALUES
Faith: Our belief in God permeates every facet of the University's life.
Service: We reach out to serve one another and those beyond our campus.
Community: We work to build better communities and a better society.

LASALLIAN EDUCATIONAL PRINCIPLES
• Respect for each individual as a unique person

• A Christian perspective 

• An excellent education
• A spirit of community

• A life of service 
• A quest for justice and peace
