  • Collaborative Ministry: Strengthen partnership with lay colleagues, especially in leadership roles.
  • Ignatian Character of Our Schools: Assure the Ignatian heritage, Catholic identity, and Jesuit mission of our high schools and universities.
  • Intellectual Apostolate: Contribute to the intellectual mission of the Church, especially by scholarship, research, and writing.
  • Solidarity with the Poor: Choose to be with the poor in lifestyle and for the poor in mission, locally and globally.
