Mission Week 2024 comes to a close with two final events

Mission Week 2024 wraps up tomorrow with two final events. The Office of Mission and Ministry would like to thank all of the people who attended this week’s events.


Mass | 10 p.m. in the St. Joan of Arc Chapel


Thinking and Thanking: Gratitude, Service, Generosity, and Helping Students Find Their Place | 11 a.m. to Noon

  • AMU 252
  • Gratitude improves the lives of students and adults. Recent educational research combined with the current thinking of CTL leaders suggest that a fittingly complex concept of gratitude can help students find hope in troubled times. Indeed, gratitude may be considered an act of service on campus, especially when working with today’s students. Using elements of Ignatian reflection, this roundtable session for all instructors across campus will articulate a concept of gratitude informed by current research and anecdotal experience from attendees, provide concrete ways to incorporate gratitude into participants’ pedagogical practices, and suggest ways that teaching through gratitude helps instill hope in students.
