The records of University Ministry (formerly Campus Ministry) document the foundation of Ministry as a campus department. Records also include planning materials for the variety of activities and programs offered by University Ministry as well as photographs and video highlighting outreach programs and retreats.
University Ministry, known as Campus Ministry until 1994, became a formalized department at the University of San Diego in the early 1970s. Prior to that time, two Chaplains served the College for Men, College for Women, and School of Law. Though not given the formal title of 'Campus Ministry,' ministry was integral to student life. The College for Women had counselors who served each class by planning events and advising students on a variety of issues. Students were also required to attend First Friday Mass and an Annual Spiritual Retreat.
These records are open for research.
