Hiring For the Mission

Newman University and its sponsoring congregation, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, believe it is vital that all employees experience a good “fit” between their work at NU and the mission of the university. We invite you to learn more about Newman’s mission, heritage, and other identity documents prior to an interview.

This information is accessible on the NU website at http://www.newmanu.edu/attend-nu/about-nu/identity

We want to provide potential candidates for positions at Newman University with information about its sponsoring congregation, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, and the university’s mission, vision and core values, so you can take the initiative to prepare yourself for a mission and heritage related exchange during the interview process.

We also want to assure that those, who are hired, understand, appreciate, and are committed to learning about and living the mission in their employment at Newman University.

By acquainting yourself with these documents, the interview process will be enhanced and will enable the person selected for the position to begin as soon as possible to assist the university in living into its vision and continuing to provide a rich heritage for the entire Newman community.

You may be asked a few interview questions related to these documents, so you should be able to articulate how the NU mission resonates with you as well as how you might contribute to living and advancing the mission.

  1. What aspects of Newman’s mission statement appeal to you? And why?
  2. How do you think the mission of Newman University fits into the position for which you are applying?
  3. How will you contribute to the mission of Newman University?
