Some Internet Resources on Jesuit Mission and Identity

The Conference on Mission and Identity sponsored by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU), brings together persons working on mission and identity issues at the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States.

To help facilitate the work of this Conference, we have prepared this list of Internet resources, presenting links to information on Jesuit mission and identity at the Jesuit institutions of higher education in the United States.

This compilation attempts to include the following:

  • Mission statements (or comparable statements of purpose) of the Jesuit institution
  • Distinct sections on Jesuit tradition
  • Connections to the Jesuit Community at the institution
  • Any material which could be considered "special topics" in Jesuit identity
  • In lieu of mission statements and distinct reference to mission and identity, any general references to be found in sections such as "about" or "history of" sections of the web sites.
