See a copy of The Call Toward Tomorrow UST Integrated Planning presentation made during the Strategic Thinking Oversight Committee Meeting on February 12, 2018.
The University of St. Thomas is a Catholic university, and we are also Houston’s only Catholic university. That designation is an honor, and often a responsibility as well. I am always grateful when an opportunity comes along to act in a visible way to proclaim our authentic Catholicity. We have just such an opportunity this weekend.
It has been some time since we reported on The Call Toward Tomorrow integrated planning process. When last semester ended the 30-plus member Oversight Committee had completed work on the internal operational and spiritual core values and the 100-year core purpose. These were framing pieces that were built upon the University’s Catholic identity and mission statement, Basilian values and motto.
It was a privilege and a pleasure for Melynda and me to welcome more than 500 guests on Saturday, Feb. 10, to the Hilton Americas-Houston for the 68th annual University of St. Thomas Light the Way Mardi Gras Scholarship Gala.
