Santa Clara University
In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the assassination of six Jesuits and two of their collaborators at the Universidad de Centroamerica (UCA) in El Salvador during the country’s civil war, this panel will consider the life struggles and challenges out of which the prominent social justice leadership of Rutillo Grande, Ignacio Ellacuria, and Jon Sobrino emerged. Join us for this reflection on justice, and how educated solidarity and the proyecto social have become central to the work of Ignatian leaders in Jesuit higher education and beyond. Panelists include Kevin Burke, S.J. of the Jesuit School of Theology, Robert Lasselle-Klein of Holy Names University, and Ana Maria Pineda, R.S.M. and Lynette Parker of Santa Clara University.

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.

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.
