All Things Jesuit

Sign up for Arrupe Seminar

April 15, 2011

The Arrupe Seminar on the Foundations and Vision of Jesuit Education is an opportunity for faculty and staff to engage in a deeper way with the Jesuit heritage and ethos that animates our university. Also known as the Arrupe Seminar, the class runs from October through early May each year and strives to promote: (1) understanding of the Jesuit educational tradition and of Jesuits, (2) assimilation of the knowledge and values of the tradition, (3) application of what one learns and assimilates to the carrying out of one’s role at the university, and (4) commitment to carrying on the tradition. It offers an experience that is both scholarly and personal, requiring a significant amount of reading, discussion and personal reflection, and including presentations by people knowledgeable in the Jesuit tradition. 

Those interested in signing up for the Arrupe Seminar for the 2011-2012 academic year can contact Margaret Moore ( by Friday, April 22. If you have any questions, you can contact Peter Ely, vice president for Mission and Ministry, at or ext. 6158.
