Campus ministry contributes to the development of mission and Catholic identity at Catholic colleges and universities through student programming and pastoral care, and also through service to the institution itself. It is important to recognize that while campus ministry is not solely responsible for the outward expressions of Catholic identity, it can serve as a catalyst for mission development. Campus ministry can accomplish this by encouraging campus-wide collaboration and interdisciplinary discussion, and by articulating Catholic values that can undergird university policy and practice. Such actions can reinforce the values highlighted in the parable of the Good Samaritan.
