Reflection Questions

  • What major world, national and regional events have taken place during the time I have served as a trustee?
    What effects did the event have on student life and campus culture?
  • How can I, as a trustee, help the institution prepare for a rapidly changing global society?
  • Why are they called "gifts" of our Ignatian Heritage?
