Jesuit Schools Network Colloquium 2016

By Jesuit Schools Network (JSN)
May 6th, 2016

8th Colloquium on Jesuit Education
Monday, June 20 – Friday, June 24, 2016
Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio

Purpose: Colloquium 2016 is designed so that it might provoke in educators from institutions throughout the Jesuit Schools Network a deeper analysis of who we are, what we are doing and how best we might move into the future. Colloquium 2016 will offer answers to the question of how do we ensure that Jesuit schools are not unwittingly lulling ourselves into complacence and dulling the effect we could have as Ignatian educators well into the 21st Century?

Theme: Jesuit Education: Deepening Awareness; Calling for Action is the overarching theme of Colloquium 2016 and participants will be challenged throughout the week to consider how Jesuit schools “live wisely, think deeply, and love generously.”

Attendance: Colloquium 2016 is open to all who work in schools within the Jesuit Schools Network. The event will offer programming, conversation and speakers which will be relevant to all of models of schools and all manner of professionals within the Network.  

Design: The design for Colloquium 2016 includes:

  • Speakers whose commentaries will touch on themes of conscience, competence, compassion and commitment (the themes from the 2014 SIPEI Seminar Overview and SIPEI Report).
  • Reflectors who will respond to major content pieces from their lived perspective in their individual schools.
  • Five Ignatian Educator Fair sessions throughout the week, organized around the daily themes.
  • Opportunities for socializing, networking and community building.
