Vision and Mission
The sponsoring Jesuit schools and provinces envision strengthening existing programs committed to integrating the Ignatian heritage within higher education by developing leaders grounded in that tradition who are capable of communicating its meaning and adapting its implementation to the future challenges of Jesuit colleges and universities. They further envision the establishment of new forms of Ignatian community on our campuses and among the AJCU network of schools.
The Ignatian Colleagues Program seeks to develop Ignatian partners in Jesuit higher education who are capable of and committed to assuming leadership within the Ignatian spiritual and educational heritage and who will sustain their school’s Jesuit Catholic character into the future. The Program also seeks to enhance local, regional, and national networks of Ignatian leaders who work collaboratively to enrich Jesuit higher education.
