Our educational mission
For 450 years, Jesuit education has sought to educate ‘the whole person’ intellectually and professionally, psychologically, morally and spiritually…Tomorrow’s ‘whole person’ cannot be whole without an educated awareness of society and culture with which to contribute socially, generously, in the real world. Tomorrow’s whole person must have, in brief, a well-educated solidarity.
Students…must let the gritty reality of this world into their lives, so they can learn to feel it, think about it critically, respond to its suffering, and engage it constructively. They should learn to perceive, think, judge, choose, and act for the rights of others, especially the disadvantaged and the oppressed. Campus ministry does much to foment such intelligent, responsible, and active compassion, compassion that deserves the name solidarity.”--from a speech by Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J., Father General, Society of Jesus, at Santa Clara University, 2000
