* Alumni Summer Workshop August 1-2, 2016

This is an invitation for all ICP alumni to gather together to consider how ICP alumni might contribute to Jesuit higher education on a national level.  ICP alumni are uniquely situated to make such a contribution given their professional expertise and mission centered perspective. Come and share your insights, network with colleagues across our institutions, and reconnect with one another.  A planning committee is already in place. Mark Reed, president of St. Joseph’s University and an ICP alumni, will be with us to share his reflections as well as others.   Arrive by noon and leave by noon the next day!   A block of rooms has been reserved for $135 per night per person at the Holiday Inn Express (Conference Center), 6600 North Manheim Rd, Rosemont, IL 60018, (847) 544-7500.  More details to follow.

Welcome to ICP

The Ignatian Colleagues Program is a national program of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) designed to educate and form administrators and faculty more deeply in the Jesuit & Catholic tradition of higher education. The goal of our program is to provide a solid intellectual foundation as well as opportunities for participants to personally experience and appropriate their significance so they may better articulate, adapt, and advance the Jesuit & Catholic mission of their campuses.

Participation in the Ignatian Colleagues Program is an incredible opportunity not only to take a deep dive into learning and experiencing many aspects of our Jesuit and Catholic identity, charism, tradition and spirituality, it also provides the opportunity to form meaningful relationships with colleagues working in senior leadership roles throughout our 28  Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States.

As you look through the pages of our website you will notice we offer online workshops, international immersion experiences and Ignatian silent retreats to help achieve our goals. There is also specific information available for new and current participants.  Going forward, we hope to create a page for our alumni.

Know that is an extreme privilege for us to serve those who care so deeply about fostering the Jesuit and Catholic mission on our campuses.  We look forward to working with you.
