As I enter my second year as Executive Director of the Ignatian Center, I look on the Center’s mission with a sense of gratitude for all that has been and hope for what is to come. We don’t have to look too hard to find things that cause worry and division in today’s world; so opportunities for thoughtful reflection and respectful dialogue are especially precious. By shining light on our Ignatian heritage, the Ignatian Center provides a way of contemplating and acting in the world that is practical, universally relevant, and transformative.
I am so proud of the work the Ignatian Center does on behalf of SCU to form tomorrow’s leaders who will strive to make our world a better place. I do hope you will continue to be a part of this great and much needed work. Together we can ignite the flame of Jesuit spirituality in our world - here, there, and everywhere.
Rev. Dorian Llywelyn, S.J.
Executive Director


New Podcast Explores the Common Good

Jesuit Education Inspires Software

John Matthew Sobrato, SCU 2010 alumnus and ICJE Advisory Board member, sat down with Executive Director Dorian Llywelyn, SJ, to discuss his development of Alloy Learning Software, an online assessment tool that enables educators to better understand their students and teach them intentionally. John credits his roots in Jesuit education for his passion to expand educational choice for the under-served. Read the full interview.


First Year Students Immerse in San Jose

Last month, we hosted the second annual San Jose Immersion Trip for first-year students. The trip provided students an opportunity to meet new classmates, learn about the social and economic reality of San Jose, and deepen their understanding of SCU’s Jesuit tradition of community engaged education. Trip veterans Mandi Sit and Yesi Magdaleno led this year's trip. To hear more about this impactful, life-changing immersion, read Mandi's story.
