Justice in Jesuit Higher Education Conference

MISSION AND MINISTRY | This Call for Proposals is an invitation to share in a historic gathering at Georgetown University, June 3-6, 2020. This event will mark 20 years since the first Commitment to Justice in Jesuit Higher Education Conference, held at Santa Clara University, when Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J., delivered his famous address as superior general: The Service of Faith & the Promotion of Justice in American Jesuit Higher Education.” Father Kolvenbach challenged us to integrate this mission commitment into our teaching, scholarship and institutional lives as Jesuit universities, and inspired the formation of an Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities national steering committee, which has hosted conferences at John Carroll (2005), Fairfield (2009), Creighton (2013) and Seattle University (2017). More information about past conferences can be found here.

“We warmly welcome members of the Jesuit higher education community from every discipline and department,” write National Steering Committee co-chairs Joe Orlando of Seattle University and Mike Duffy of University of San Francisco, “to bring your insights and best practices, your scholarship and pedagogical experience, your aspirations and your inspirations, to enrich this gathering of colleagues as we both honor the journey of the past 20 years, and orient ourselves toward the expansive horizon ahead of us.”

Go to csj.georgetown.edu/justice2020/cfp to read the full Call for Proposals and to submit a proposal for a workshop, roundtable, or posters.
