Fall 2012 Manresa for New Faculty and Staff

"Manresa" provides an overview of Xavier's mission and identity for new faculty and staff. During each session, veteran faculty and staff will share some aspect of our tradition followed by stimulating discussions with new colleagues.

As with all of our programs, faculty and staff of all faith traditions, and those with no affiliation, are invited to join us for this interesting program.


Arrive on Friday, September 7, 2012 at 5:00 p.m.

Depart on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 4:00 p.m.

Join us for this relaxed overnight experience as we hear from great speakers and share a meal and conversation in the beautiful retreat surroundings of the Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford about 20 minutes from campus.

We will get a glimpse into the life of St. Ignatius Loyola and an overview of Jesuit education.We will also hear from veteran Xavier faculty and staff about how they incorporate Ignatian principles into their work.

This option is often favored by new faculty because they may not be free to attend the luncheons of "Option Two" which occur during the Common Hour when many departmental and college meetings are held.



Manresa on Campus has presentations similar to those offered at Manresa at Milford.  This luncheon series is hosted on Mondays from 12:30-2:45 p.m. in the Schiff Conference Center.

Lunch is served at all three sessions. 


September 24: Jesuit Education: A Better Education for a Better World

October 1: The Ignatian Vision

October 22: Living the Mission at Xavier
