Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy

Ignatian Pedagogy Research Grant

Research Grant Application
Fall 2017


The Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy (FCIP) will again be offering several grants designed to encourage research and discussion around the pedagogy of the Ignatian paradigm (IP).  Faculty members familiar with the IP are encouraged to consider how their teaching, research, and/or scholarship in the Jesuit tradition has impacted their interaction with students and influenced their work. As a grant recipient, faculty will be asked to participate in select IP programming offered by the Center, and to provide a mid-year and final report on their project. Projects will be submitted for journal publication and/or shared through the eCommons service of the University Libraries. Our goal is to increase our attention to IP in our scholarship and teaching, and to share our lessons learned with the broader scholarly community.

This initiative is being funded through Loyola’s Plan 2020.
