Through the generosity of the Bannan family endowment, the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education sponsors academic events and supports scholarship that specifically furthers the Jesuit, Catholic character of the University.

From 2012-2015 the Ignatian Center offered three yearlong thematic Bannan Institutes. These Institutes carried on the long tradition of Bannan programs, speakers and events in a reimaged effort to engage Santa Clara University and the larger community. The topic of these Institutes spanned academic, public, and pastoral offerings around issues of contemporary religious, cultural, and theological debate.
