The purpose of athletics is to assist students in obtaining a well-rounded education consistent with the University's liberal arts, philosophy and Franciscan tradition.

Those individuals responsible for the program are expected to foster and maintain the values and the goals associated with the mission of the University as an institution of higher education.
