MISSION AND IDENTITY

CUIB’s Vision is grounded on its identity as a Catholic Growth Mindset Entrepreneurial University. Like every true Catholic university as articulated in Pope John Paul’s II Apostolic Constitution on Catholic universities of 1990 titled Ex Corde Ecclesiae (from the heart of the Church,) CUIB “is an academic community which, in a rigorous and critical fashion, assists in the protection and advancement of human dignity and of a cultural heritage through research, teaching and various services offered to the local, national and international communities (Ex Corde Ecclesiae no. 12). She also “possesses that institutional autonomy necessary to perform its functions effectively and guarantees its members academic freedom, so long as the rights of the individual person and of the community are preserved within the confines of the truth and the common good (Ex Corde Ecclesiae no. 12). In addition, besides the teaching, research and services common to all Universities, CUIB as a Catholic University, by institutional commitment, brings to its task the inspiration and light of the Christian message especially the Economy of Communion Philosophy of the Focolare Movement. In CUIB “Catholic ideals, attitudes and principles penetrate and inform university activities in accordance with the proper nature and autonomy of these activities” (Ex Corde Ecclesiae No. 14). This makes CUIB both a university and Catholic. And following Ex Corde Ecclesiae, being both means “representing various branches of human knowledge, and an academic institution in which Catholicism is vitally present and operative” (Ex Corde Ecclesiae, No. 14). This is captured in the mission of CUIB “To prepare professional servant leaders with moral and spiritual values who will contribute to the sustainable development of their communities”. 

The Catholic spirituality and identity of the university as elaborately articulated by the President/Pro-Chancellor in his Vision 2023 is manifested through three main activities viz: Economy of Communion, Catholic Berakah Ministries and Volunteerism and Community Service.
