Accompanied by historical artwork, Lucas will explore the story of the papacy’s closure of the Society of Jesus, and its official restoration almost three decades later.

Fall 2014: Leadership and Justice
Educated Solidarity and the Proyecto Social

Leadership within the Ignatian idiom is rooted in a foundational commitment to live out one’s vocation in generous relationship with God for the good of all creation. In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the assassination of the Jesuits and their collaborators at the Universidad de Centroamerica (UCA) in El Salvador, and the 200th anniversary of the restoration of the Society of Jesus, we will consider how the work of educated solidarity and the proyecto social is central to the mission of Jesuit higher education.
