Mission & Vision


Inspired by the legacy of Saint Francis’ encounter with the Sultan Malike al-Kamil at Damietta, the Center provides innovative initiatives that educate, engage and empower students to live and work effectively in culturally diverse environments. We provide experiences of the effects of prejudice and inequality in our world, and lead students to become agents of social justice. The Center’s co-curricular programs, at times in conjunction with in-class learning, foster a campus-wide environment that encourages our students to engage, respect and love all people as brothers and sisters.
