The Mind, Heart, & Hands of Jesuit Education


“Your right place is at the frontiers,
with a trust and ability that comes from God.”

- Pope Francis, 2014 address to Jesuits and colleagues

As members of a Jesuit University, we are all called to live with and for those who exist on society’s precarious frontiers – those experiencing poverty, homelessness, and immigration injustice, to name a few. Our Ignatian Center mission is to help show that Jesuit education has a mind, a heart, and hands; always willing to extend friendship to the most vulnerable.

Mind – Through a series of lectures and panels, the Ignatian Center’s Bannan Forum “Tech and the Human Spirit” continues to focus on what it means to be human in our technological age, beginning with the October 14 event about the use of technology in our criminal justice system.

Heart – Ignatian Center student employees Marissa Ocampo and Yesenia Magdaleno-Solis joined other Jesuit university students this summer at the Ignatian Solidarity Networks Summit to reflect on the realities faced by migrants and refugees.

Hands – This summer, the Ignatian Center led a group of SCU Faculty and Staff on an Immersion to the Jesuit-run Kino Border Initiative, located along the Mexico/Arizona border.

May we continue to exemplify the mind, heart, and hands of Jesuit Education - here, there, and everywhere.

Marissa & Yesi ISN Summit 2019

Creating a Network of Advocacy

This past July, two of the Ignatian Center's student associates, Marissa Ocampo and Yesenia Magdaleno-Solis attended the Ignatian Solidarity Network's 2019 Ignatian Justice Summit on Immigration. They connected with 25 other student-advocates and were all given tangible tools to work for immigration justice on their campuses.

“Seeing what I can actually do, what action I can bring back to SCU, has been so powerful,” Ocampo shared. “I have a vision now for what action I want to take as an advocate in the future.”
