Bannan Institutes

Through the generosity of the Bannan family endowment, the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education sponsors academic events and supports scholarship that specifically furthers the Jesuit, Catholic character of the University. Bannan Institutes are yearlong thematic programs, which span academic, public, and pastoral offerings to engage Santa Clara University and the larger community around issues of contemporary religious, cultural, and theological debate.

2014-15: Ignatian Leadership

In the first principle and foundation of the Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius of Loyola urges: "I ought to desire and elect only the thing which is more conducive to the end for which I am created." Shaped by the Spiritual Exercises, the 2014-2015 Bannan Institute will explore the theme of Ignatian leadership as a vocational practice or way of proceeding that seeks to affect personal and communal transformation.
