Co-sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion
Santa Clara’s own Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion, Aldo Billingslea, facilitates a panel of SCU staff and faculty members in a reflection on issues of diversity and inclusion within the University and the greater community. As part of the fall quarter Bannan Institute series exploring leadership and justice, panelists will consider how SCU’s Jesuit, Catholic identity shapes community dialogue and engagement. Panelists represent an array of backgrounds across the University, and will highlight areas in need of attention and areas in which we are flourishing.

About the Bannan Institute
Bannan Institutes are yearlong, thematic programs hosted by the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education at Santa Clara University. Each institute features a series of lectures, retreats, and events that address matters of significance within the Jesuit, Catholic Intellectual tradition and seek to foster an ethic of dialogue among persons of diverse philosophical and religious commitments.
Shaped by the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the 2014-2015 Bannan Institute will explore the theme of Ignatian Leadership as a vocational practice, or a way of proceeding that seeks to affect personal and communal transformation.
All events are free and open to the public. Please RSVP at www.scu.edu/ic/bannan.
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.
