Living Out the Jesuit Mission
office for institutional diversity
Diverse Perspectives Series
Having a shared understanding of the relationship between diversity, inclusion and the Ignatian tradition enables each of us to listen and be listened to, be welcoming and feel welcomed; and to embrace our work and the work of others. To that end, Campus Ministry and the Office for Institutional Diversity have partnered to reintroduce the Diversity and Ignatian Tradition initiative; via the “Living out the Jesuit Mission: Diverse Perspectives Series”. This program focuses on how employees of various backgrounds (race, ethnicity, gender, ability, sexual orientation, etc.) and faith traditions (religion) incorporate the Jesuit tradition within their work at Boston College and into their personal lives. Members of the faculty, staff and administration will be invited to share how they experience BC’s mission, which is influenced by the Jesuit mission and the Ignatian vision by responding to the following questions:
To what extent have you incorporated and live out the BC mission in your work at the University?
How do you to articulate the Jesuit mission as it relates to the mission of Boston College?
How has the Ignatian vision enhanced your personal world view?
