Ignatian Tradition Seminar

Twice each year since 2004, the Ignatian Tradition Seminar has brought together twelve members of the faculty and senior leadership for a four-part lunch series that familiarizes them with the history, values and characteristics of Jesuit Higher Education. The seminar, co-facilitated by the Vice President for Mission and Ministry and a lay colleague, introduces participants to St. Ignatius of Loyola, briefly discusses the early history of the Jesuits and their gradual involvement in education, and reflects on Jesuit life and how the values of the Jesuits help to shape the identity of Georgetown and other Jesuit institutions.  Each session of this popular seminar is characterized by open and stimulating conversation among colleagues who may not have known each other before the seminar.
