Welcome to JSN’s 2023 Presidents & Board Chairs ICG and New Presidents Orientation landing page.

We’re excited to welcome leaders from our member schools throughout Canada and the United States to Chicago for our biennial meeting. The theme of this year’s ICG is “To Work Together in Leadership and Service: Leading Jesuit Schools in Pivotal Times.” While in Chicago, we will look more closely at the relationships that define our identity as Catholic schools, as well as practices that help strengthen it.

This ICG is for Presidents and Board Chairs. If a Board Chair cannot attend, please consider inviting another Trustee. The New Presidents Orientation is for presidents in their first and second years. 

We look forward to seeing you in the Windy City! 


JSN only charges participants for the costs we incur – we do not operate Ignatian Colleague Gatherings at a profit. The approximate Event Registration fee for this ICG is $1,100. Hotel accommodations are not included in the Event Registration fee and will be billed directly to the participant by the hotel.

There is no charge for the New Presidents Orientation; however, participants should add an additional day to their hotel reservation.

Registration for this event is now closed.
