Mission and Vision
The Mission of Educate Magis is to create a vibrant online community that will connect educators from our Jesuit and Ignatian schools around the world.
This community, transcending boundaries and borders, will open a new way of proceeding for our schools in service of the Jesuit mission, a faith that does justice.
Educate Magis is dedicated to answering the Society’s call to become a “universal body with a universal mission”, enabling us to collaborate in solidarity as a global community.
Over the next five years, Educate Magis aspires to:
- Connect Jesuit educators from around the world
- Facilitate relevant and innovative conversations
- Provide a forum for the sharing of exciting content and the co-creation of new content
- Allow for collaborative efforts that span our network
Notes: This vision, rooted in the long tradition of Jesuit education, allows for new and unique ways of proceeding that advance and renew our universal mission. This vision exemplifies what the whole of our network can accomplish by working together as a global community.
Join our vibrant global community of Jesuit Educators from around the world.
