University Leaders Summit
Forming & Connecting Ignatian Leaders for Justice
July 25-28, 2017
John Carroll University || University Heights, OH
ISN’s University Leaders Summit brings together students from Jesuit & other Catholic universities who are passionate about driving change for more socially just local and global communities. The program provides formation in the areas of leadership, social justice, and Ignatian spirituality.
The schedule is rooted in The Student Leadership Challenge and Heroic Leadership models and the work of exemplary Jesuit leaders: St. Ignatius of Loyola, Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Ignacio Ellacuria, S.J., and Pope Francis. Summit facilitators weave together Jesuit leaders’ examples with leadership best practices, and help students make connections to their own lives through hands-on activities and personal reflection time. Further, the program’s working format allows students to engage with Jesuit college alumni who have demonstrated significant leadership for social justice during their undergrad years, network and brainstorm with other student leaders, and develop a community action plan to translate ideas and skills into programs on their campus that tackle injustice on a local and global level.
Young Alumni Panel
Alumni from Jesuit universities who actively worked for social justice as undergraduate students and continue to work for social justice as alumni, share their insights with the group. Participants are provided ample time for questions and answers to glean organizing tips for college and beyond.
