BY ISN STAFF | June 11, 2011

ISN is thrilled to announce that Christopher Kerr – Coordinator of Social Justice Initiatives & Immersion Experience Programs at John Carroll University has been named ISN’s next Executive Director, effective July 11th. Chris succeeds Ann Magovern, who has served as the E.D. for the last 5 years.

Ann shares, “After five years as the Executive Director, I have decided to pursue another professional opportunity in Catholic Education. I make this decision with deep gratitude for the support and leadership of our Board of Directors, dedicated membership, and faithful supporters of ISN’s mission. ISN is a fantastic organization making a significant impact on young leaders of the Ignatian family and the broader church. I deeply believe in our mission, which makes my departure hard, but I cannot think of a better person than Chris to lead and move ISN forward!”

Chris brings extensive experience to the ISN. His experience engaging students in social justice initiatives and immersion experiences at John Carroll University, his deep understanding of Ignatian spirituality, his thorough knowledge of ISN’s Mission and Vision, and his strategic and visionary outlook, all make him a compelling leader for ISN.
