Mission in Action

Purpose Statement

The Office of Mission Engagement (OME) collaborates with University departments and other partners to advance Barry's mission, strategic priorities, and important organizational goals through promoting a culture of excellence and offering educational experiences that engage and transform. We believe that Barry's values and core commitments are integral to institutional effectiveness and that the mission is made visible when students, faculty, and staff model and clearly articulate a shared vision. OME coordinates with key groups to offer University-wide initiatives, events, conferences, and programs for students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, and external community members that further this mission. Through education and dialogue, opportunities to affirm our Catholic and Dominican identity and Adrian Dominican sponsorship are advanced and supported.

OME supports members of the University and broader community through offering:

  • Mission and Leadership Development Opportunities
  • New Faculty and Staff Orientation
  • Student Mission Presentations
  • Founders’ Week

Initiatives and opportunities that reflect our mission are fostered through the following committees:

  • Barry’s Ecological Sustainability Team (BEST)
