Search for What Matters


The insights of St. Ignatius and his view of the human person have appeal and relevance for people of a wide range of convictions and creeds. In our religiously-diverse community, we provide ways of encountering and experiencing the search for purpose and meaning. This quarterly luncheon speaker series provides a space on campus for the discussion of core values and experiences among faculty, staff, students, and alumni.  One faculty member, one staff member, and one Jesuit faculty/staff member are invited each year to respond to the single question: "What matters to me and why?" This popular series serves to foster a culture of discernment and vocational reflection in the Ignatian tradition.
