We are so proud of and excited for this graduating class of Ignatian Center student leaders. Whethere they served as Fellows, Immersion Coordinators, or front desk assistants, we are confident that they will use their passion and dedication to make the world a better place.

When the Ignatian Center launched Thriving Neighbors in 2013, the goal was to help ensure that all children from San Jose's Greater Washington neighborhood finish high school prepared for post-secondary education. 8 years later, that vision is coming to fruition.

Ignatian Center Advisory Board member Vicki Pope recently received the Paul Locatelli, S.J. Award, named after the beloved 20-year former president of SCU. The award recognizes those who have given distinguished and outstanding service to the University.

Welcome Incoming President Julie H. Sullivan
The staff of the Division of Mission and Ministry joins the whole SCU community in warmly welcoming Dr. Julie Sullivan as our incoming president. Dr. Sullivan has already demonstrated her deep commitment to Catholic higher education and familiarity with the Jesuit charism.   
We wish Dr. Sullivan Godspeed during her transition to SCU. We look forward to working with her to achieve our university's shared vision: to educate citizens and leaders of competence, conscience, and compassion and cultivate knowledge and faith to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world.
