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

Men And Women For Others: Education For Social Justice And Social Action Today Pedro Arrupe, S.J.

Education for justice has become in recent years one of the chief concerns of the Church. Why? Because there is a new awareness in the Church that participation in the promotion of justice and the liberation of the oppressed is a constitutive element of the mission which Our Lord has entrusted to her.1 Impelled by this awareness, the Church is now engaged in a massive effort to educate - or rather to re-educate - herself, her children, and all men and women so that we may all "lead our life in its entirety... in accord with the evangelical principles of personal and social morality to be expressed in a living Christian witness."

Of Kingfishers and Dragonflies Faith and Justice at the Core of Jesuit Education Joseph Daoust, S.J.

Joseph Daoust, S.J. examines how Jesuit education has at the core of its mission a commitment to faith and justice, carrying out that mission through educating so that students develop an organic vision of social reality and are challenged to lives of service after they graduate. He delivered this address on October 15, 1999 as one of the Santa Clara University Lectures.
