Thank you for your interest in the 2016 Jesuit Leadership Seminar.
Once again this June, colleagues from across the network of Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States will meet on the campus of Loyola University Chicago for four days of rich conversation about our work and our mission. Presidents, scholars, and senior administrators will serve as faculty for the Seminar; we will learn together as we forge the relationships that are critical to the future of Jesuit Higher Education.
I hope that the Seminar will be the energizing and transformative experience for this year’s participants that it has been in past years. I look forward to meeting you in Chicago.

Leadership Development for Jesuit Colleges & Univiersities
Supporting leaders who will guide the future of Jesuit institutions
With the support of the presidents of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, the
Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities offers The Jesuit Leadership Seminar.
Participants in The Jesuit Leadership Seminar are introduced to the foundations of Jesuit education and actively
engage in discussions with peers from around the country on how the Jesuit educational tradition may be applied
in the everyday work of university decision making.
Drawing on the expertise of skilled practitioners from the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities
consortium – including current and past Jesuit university presidents who serve among the faculty – the Seminar
offers fresh perspective on key questions facing Ignatian leaders.
Its goal is to contribute to the formation of administrators in Jesuit colleges and
universities who will, in the words of St. Ignatius Loyola,
“Go out and set the world on fire!”
