These goals flow from Seton Hall’s identity as a Catholic University and make specific reference to its stated mission to educate servant leaders for a global society. We conceive this mission as lived out in the dynamic relationship between the Seton Hall community and the external environment; an evolving exchange of education and service among the University community; our neighbors, alumni and all constituents. We envision these relationships as ever-expanding—on campus, locally, nationally and internationally—as we fulfill our promise to advance Seton Hall’s mission for the future.
Value placed on service to our students and each other moves outward to our neighbors and the wider community. Servant leadership is embodied through engagement with our constituents: our alumni, neighbors and local communities, particularly those that are struggling with sustainability. A key leadership group to engage in this effort will be alumni, the majority of whom reside in the tristate area.
