Immeasurable and Lasting Impact

I began working in the Ignatian Center nearly ten years ago with the Immersions program, excited for the opportunity to form the next generation of leaders in a broader worldview. As I take the reins on my role as Interim Executive Director, I reflect back on all the students who have had the opportunity to experience immersions and other formative programs with the Ignatian Center during this past decade. Our recent Immersions Alumni Survey revealed the lasting impact of the program on individuals -- individuals like Yajaira Morales-Vidovich ‘11. 

“Every experience, encounter, and person at SCU will change you in one way or another,” states Yahjaira. “Some will be forever and some will be momentarily. However, immersion trips change you in ways that cannot be measured with time.”  

In this period of crisis when our concept of time is turned upside down, it helps to take a moment to remember that there is much good in the world today because of our past, and our future remains bright as the seeds we plant today will continue to bear fruit in infinite ways - here, there, and everywhere

The Infinite Impact of Immersions

After graduating from SCU with multiple degrees and teaching credentials, Yajaira "Yaya" Morales-Vidovich '11 entered the teaching profession well prepared. It was her experience on immersion trips, however, that Yaya credits for shaping not only her professional path, but her personal journey as well.
