Mission Monday

How do you live JCU’s mission?

Barb Kingsbury, administrative assistant in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, shares this reflection:

“I try to live the JCU mission through supporting our students and fellow co-workers by taking the time to listen, to understand, to reflect, to pray together, and in sharing laughter which is food for the soul – part of an essential food group! There are always students in need of encouragement and guidance to take under my wings and new Blue Streaks to welcome to campus. The friendships and relationships established here at JCU with students and co-workers alike are part of the many blessings in my life for which I am truly thankful. It is not so much a mission as it is a joy because we are a community and we are family!”
