Characteristics of the Ignatian Vision
George Traub, S.J.

Jesuit "Products" are Persons of Quality
An excerpt from Jesuit Saturdays: Sharing the Ignatian Spirit with Lay Colleagues and Friends
William Byron, S.J.

Reflection Questions:

  • Which characteristic of the Ignatian Vision speaks most strongly to me? Why?
  • How do I support the development of people of competence and compassion?
  • Robert K. Greenleaf, author of Servant Leadership, encourages leaders to ask "To what extent does the university now reach [its] goals, at a reasonable level of excellence, with the students it now has, and with resources it now has?" (from the reading by W. Byron, SJ). How do I respond?
