Jesuit Principles in Silicon Valley

SCU proudly proclaims that we are the Jesuit University in Silicon Valley. Our location and identity come together in a unique way – and the Jesuit part of who we are both complements and challenges the rapid innovation typical in our zipcode. The recent essay by SCU’s new President, Kevin O’Brien SJ, on Silicon Valley and Jesuit principles, invites a new, Ignatian look at technology, proposing a way of innovating that “moves thoughtfully and lifts up people.”

This is exactly what the Ignatian Center's Tech and the Human Spirit series aims to do. In all our endeavors, the Ignatian Center prioritizes championing reflective thought and contributing to human flourishing in all its dimensions at the heart of all that our students, faculty and staff value and do - here, there, and everywhere.

Why Silicon Valley Needs Jesuit Values

In a recent America Magazine op-ed, SCU President Kevin O’Brien, S.J., explored how Jesuit teachings can help Silicon Valley to move thoughtfully and lift up people. The topic of the article is one that the Ignatian Center's Bannan Forum will explore further throughout the coming academic year with the Tech & the Human Spirit series, which launched last year and culminated in a soldout collaboration with TEDxSCU.
