Eleven faculty and staff members took time out of their summer schedules to attend the Jesuit Schools Network Colloquium in Chicago. The conference for more than 90 Jesuit schools was held June 24-28 at Loyola University Chicago with the theme “Building Communities of Justice and Hope.” This event represents the largest gathering of Jesuit educators in the country and occurs every three years.
It was a great opportunity for employees from Jesuit schools to confer on best practices and discuss challenges and potential solutions. The attendees were also treated to lectures and panel discussions.
This year’s featured speaker was Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ. He is a bestselling author and the founder of Homeboy Industries, an enterprise that supports those who were involved in gangs and the criminal justice system in their efforts to become productive members of society.
