Mission & Identity

The distinctiveness of a Jesuit education stems from its deep-rooted history and a mission grounded in faith and intellectual rigor. Since its beginnings in 1548, when the first Jesuit institution opened its doors in Messina, Sicily, Jesuit higher education remains committed to academic excellence, service, leadership and caring for the whole person.

At the request of the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, the Provincials of the U.S. Jesuit Provinces and the Presidents of AJCU member institutions have established a self-study and peer review process for reaffirming the Jesuit, Catholic mission priorities of U.S. Jesuit colleges and universities. Online materials have been created to assist with this process, known as the Mission Priority Examen (MPE) process; click 新加坡梯子 to view them online.
