Open Your Mind and Your Heart
Avila University’s CSJ Center for Heritage, Spirituality, and Service and the Buchanan Initiative for Peace and Nonviolence focus on the core components of our mission, including:
- The heritage and charisma of Avila’s founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet,
- Excellence and continual growth in teaching and learning, and
- Opportunities for understanding and justice in our global community.
The CSJ Center and the Buchanan Initiative are integrated throughout our curriculum and student experience. They provide opportunities that empower students, faculty, and staff to develop lifelong learning, a global perspective, and service to the dear neighbor.
