Vincentian Mission Institute

Founded in 2007, VMI is a collaborative effort among the three Vincentian universities in the United States—Niagara University, St. John’s University, and DePaul University. This two-year cohort program seeks to engage senior leaders at our three institutions in support of their institution’s distinctive Vincentian and Catholic identity. Through collaborative online coursework, enthusiastic web conference discussions, thoughtful case studies and capstone projects, and a Vincentian Heritage trip to France VMI strives to have its participants answer the question: What does it mean for our institution to be a vibrant Catholic, Vincentian university in the twenty-first century?
