The Office for Mission Integration (OMI) creates opportunities for Detroit Mercy personnel to better understand the rich Catholic and explicitly Jesuit and Mercy traditions that inform the mission of University of Detroit Mercy. 

The OMI empowers faculty, staff, administrators and trustees to creatively and effectively lead from a commitment to Detroit Mercy's mission, more fully integrate the mission into the life of the University and thus better serve our students.
