Province Ignatian Educators of Distinction

Faculty and staff of the universities in the Midwest Province of the Society of Jesus are being recognized for their dedication to the Jesuit Catholic educational mission (i.e., Creighton, Detroit-Mercy, Loyola-Chicago, John Carroll, Marquette, and Xavier). Designation as an “Ignatian Educator of Distinction” is a campus and public recognition of a person’s commitment and competence in animating the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence. It is based on depth and time of education typically consisting of 20 hours in a one year period engaged in comprehensive education and/or scholarship on Jesuit identity, including pedagogy, spirituality and heritage. Activities include completing network programs (i.e., AJCU’s Ignatian Colleagues Program, ACCU Collegium), publishing articles (such as for Conversations or the Journal of Jesuit Business Education) or campus coordinated offerings. Once certified, continuing education at the ‘refresher’ level is expected every five years.
