Ignatian Colleagues Gathering

Global Perspectives Leaders

Global Perspectives Leaders

March 12-15, 2024 | Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter | Cincinnati, OH


Welcome to our Global Perspectives Leaders ICG 2023 landing page. This page acts as a central resource, evolving to include more content as needed.

The purpose of JSN’s Global Perspectives Leaders gathering will be to 1) share the current context of global work in JSN including our Global Dimensions Inventory (GDI), Ignatian Global Scholars Program (IGS), and Ignatian Global Engagement Mentors Program (I-GEM), 2) examine the role and integration of the 8 areas of the GDI (curriculum, communications/technology, co-curricular programming, DEI, ecological justice, reconciliation-service-and-justice, interculturality, and staff formation) 3) to foster deeper connections and collaborations between those in globally minded leadership roles in JSN schools. 

Please see the ‘Themes and Logistics’ tab on the ICG landing page for general information.

Registration for this event is forthcoming.


Your approximated registration fee will cover all related costs the gathering itself (including all facets of facilitating the multi-day program, meeting spaces, materials, technology, the local school visit, etc.), group meals, and your guest room, should you require one.  Please be assured that every effort will be made to keep costs as reasonable as possible while providing for a thoroughly professional event for those who attend.
