Reflection Questions:

  • What world, national, or regional events have taken place during the time I have begun working at a Jesuit institution? 
    1. What effects have those events had on student life and campus culture? 
    2. How can I help the institution and students prepare for a rapidly changing global society?
  • Why are they called "gifts" of our Ignatian Heritage?
