    Convocation for the 2014-2015 academic year will be held on Tuesday, September 16, at 4:00 p.m. in the Mission Church. This is our first community event ushering in the new academic year before our students arrive on campus. I invite all faculty and staff to attend the annual program which gives me the opportunity to welcome new members to the University community, acknowledge achievements, and highlight past progress and future plans for the upcoming year.

    On Thursday, July 31, the University community will gather to celebrate the Feast of St. Ignatius with liturgy at 11:30 a.m. in the Mission Church followed by a picnic lunch on The Alameda Mall. This is a special tradition for Santa Clara and Jesuit institutions around the world when we honor the founder of the Society of Jesus and recall his unique spiritual gifts.

    Ignatius left a legacy of spiritual practices that are grounded in our everyday lives and focused on actions that serve the greater glory of God. His was a mission of love, justice and a special concern for the poor, the sick and the hungry. As a community, may we be inspired by Ignatius' practice of seeing God in all things and in all people.

    Please mark you calendars for Thursday, July 31, to celebrate our Ignatian roots.
