The basis of campus ministry is our commitment to the dignity of human life and respect for each person. In doing so, campus ministry focuses on the spiritual life of Briar Cliff students and seeks to integrate faith and action. BCU students learn a lot about themselves by sharing what they have with others. Perhaps that's why they volunteer approximately 10,000 hours of community service annually.
