Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education

Part of the Ignatian Center, the Bannan Institutes are yearlong thematic programs that address matters of significance within the Jesuit, Catholic intellectual tradition, foster an ethic of dialogue among persons of diverse religious and philosophical commitments, and facilitate opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange across the University and broader community.
Diocese of San Jose
The Diocese of San Jose, the Catholic Church in Santa Clara County, is a community rooted in Baptism—hearing and keeping God’s word and recognizing our relationship to one another as children of God. We welcome and encourage all to join us in our community and in making a difference. We serve the people of this valley in collaboration and conjunction with scores of Catholic organizations—high schools, universities, hospitals and social service agencies and other ministries—dedicated to carrying out Christ’s mission on earth.
