FACULTY & STAFF IMMERSION
Since 1992, the Ignatian Center has hosted faculty and staff immersions, sparked initially by the signing of the peace accords in El Salvador and the call for truth and reconciliation in the wake of the civil war there. Over the years, many members of our campus community have taken part in Ignatian Center immersions. We hear time and time again that those experiences have made a profound personal and professional impact on participants. They offer participants a unique, personal opportunity to enrich their own involvement with Jesuit higher education, strengthen their solidarity with marginalized communities, and foster companionship and collaboration with fellow SCU colleagues.
Today, we continue our ongoing commitment to a partnership on the Arizona/Mexico Border, working alongside many Jesuits and Jesuit institutions with the Kino Border Initiative, which seeks to promote US/Mexico border and immigration policies that affirm the dignity of each human person, and a spirit of cross-frontier solidarity. The purpose of this program is to:
- Deepen our engagement with the Jesuit higher-educational vision
- Strengthen our understanding of and solidarity with marginalized communities
- Foster companionship and collaboration with fellow SCU colleagues
APPLICATION FOR THE NEXT FACULTY STAFF IMMERSION WILL OPEN SUMMER OF 2023.
