National Seminar on Jesuit Higher Education

Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010

National Conference on Jesuit Higher Education

On January 21-23 Santa Clara will host the National Seminar on Jesuit Higher Education.  Representatives from each of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States will be on campus to participate in the conference.  The seminar grew out of a conversation started 21 years ago at Georgetown University, when  participants from Jesuit higher education in the United States gathered to discuss their hopes for what Jesuit higher education could and would be in the future.  At that time, Father Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J., General Superior of the Society of Jesus, gave the major address.

To further the conversation that began at Georgetown, the seminar publishes the magazine, Conversations on Jesuit Higher Education, and distributes it to all the Jesuit campuses in the United States.  Published in the fall and spring, the magazine also is available online at
