JASPA Awards - Outstanding Commitment to Diversity and Social Justice
Our Ignatian heritage is the living legacy of Ignatius Loyola. It is a rich heritage of faith, seeking God in everyday life; a profound commitment to the poor and to issues of social responsibility and justice. Ignatius believed that it is imperative to act upon what is learned–to use our values in service to humanity. We are called to make a difference as “persons for others.” Established in spring of 2013, this award is given annually to a program/initiative or to an individual or a group of persons who demonstrate(s) a strong commitment to issues of diversity and social justice in Jesuit higher education.
