Some Characteristics of Jesuit Colleges and Universities: A Self-Evaluation Instrument A.J.C.U.

This document is intended to be used by Jesuit universities and colleges in the United States as a tool for self-improvement, particularly with regard to their fulfillment of their Jesuit and Catholic identity. While this document focuses on the Catholic and Jesuit identity of our schools, it needs to be used in the context of the presupposition that an institution cannot be an excellent Catholic and Jesuit university unless it fulfills its mission to be an excellent university within the American academy, and therefore values highly academic freedom and peer review. With that as a starting point, the document lists seven characteristics appropriate to Jesuit institutions and gives examples of ways in which each characteristic might be observed in concrete terms.

The Ignatian Mission Rev. Howard Gray, S.J.

Jesuit ministry is about people who want to work in ways that help other people. That humble phrase, “to help people,” was the axle of grace for Ignatius of Loyola, transforming his religious experience from an introspective examination of his own life before God to a mystic summons to see the world as God sees it.

The Jesuit Mission in Higher Education Si Hendry, S.J.

Hendry outlines how the tradition of St. Ignatius informs the characteristics that a Jesuit education should instill in its graduates.

The Jesuit University in a Broken World Dean Brackley, S.J.

In a January 2005 lecture, Brackley addresses what it means to be a Jesuit / Christian / Catholic university and how such a university should pursue excellence.

The Spiritual Humanism Of The Jesuits Ronald Modras

No enterprise, no matter how secular, is merely secular. We live in a universe of grace. From the Jesuit perspective, therefore, holiness and humanism require each other.
