Framing our Challenges in Jesuit Higher Education Fr. Charles Currie, S.J.

"We are humbled and grateful that so many... have chosen both to work with us and to share our sense of mission and our passion to reach out to the men and women of our broken but lovable world.  We are enriched by members of our own faith, but also by people from other religious traditions, those women and men of good will from all nations and cultures, with whom we labor in seeking a more just world." (The Thirty-Fifth General Congregation of The Society of Jesus,  2008).

From this pespective, Fr. Currie develops four key challenges we face as a jesuit institution in the future:  

1. To be who we are, namely Jesuit, Catholic institutions
2. To educate for a globalizing world
3. To be innovative beacons of hope in the midst of doom and gloom.
4. To develop collaborative relationships and partnerships
