Ignatian Colleagues Gathering

Global Perspectives Leaders

March 12-15, 2024

Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter (Covington, KY)

Cincinnati, OH


Welcome to JSN’s 2023 Global Perspectives Leaders ICG landing page.

Integrating Global Perspectives as Mission: Reimagining the Roles of Ignatian Educators and Leaders in Jesuit Schools. 

As Ignatian educators and leaders, we see the interconnectedness of our global world on a daily basis. We strive to actively cultivate the formation of students who will leave our schools with the skills and desires to be leaders and change-makers in taking action to better our world, both globally and locally.

Participants in this ICG will examine the integration of the crucial areas of curriculum, communications/technology, co-curricular programming, DEI efforts, ecological justice, reconciliation-service-and-justice, interculturality, and staff formation. They will take the time to reflect on their work, learn from their peers and reimagine their roles that are crucial to animating the mission of our schools, ultimately fostering deeper connections between those in globally minded leadership roles in JSN schools.

Registration for this event is now open! Visit the Event Registration and Hotel Reservation tabs to complete your registration.
