Mercy Mondays: Salve invited to open session with CMHE peer visiting team
Salve Regina is undergoing a mission accountability self-study and peer review process with the Conference for Mercy Higher Education (CMHE), and the visiting team will be “on campus” virtually this week, Feb. 22-24.
Throughout this process, the entire University is invited to consider how Salve Regina’s mission is realized in the classroom, campus and community, and the team will meet in sessions with faculty, staff, students, trustees and alumni to reflect on how the University is called to advance its Mercy, Catholic mission into the 21st century.
The peer visiting team will conclude their virtual campus visit with an open session on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at noon to offer their public exit report. At this session, the visiting team will share their preliminary report –including mission commendations and recommendations — with the entire University community.
All are welcome to join this final session through this link. The event number is 160 749 4438, and event password is mercy.
The CMHE peer visit team will be chaired by Deanne D’Emilio, president of Gwynedd Mercy University. It will also include Dr. Greg Baker, vice president for mission at Mercyhurst University; Dr. Mary-Paula Cancienne, RSM, associate director for mission integration at the Conference for Mercy Higher Education; Dr. Moya Dittmeier, executive director of the Conference for Mercy Higher Education; and Sister Catherine (Kati) McMahon, RSM, member of the board of trustees at Gwynedd Mercy University.
The Mercy, Catholic mission of Salve Regina underwrites the present and future work of the institution. An ad hoc committee developed the CMHE mission review self-study for Salve Regina on Jan. 22, 2021, and it is available for community review here.
