Over the past few weeks, several of our presidents have been honored for their leadership and/or shared their reflections on leading Jesuit, Catholic institutions with the media. Rev. Thomas B. Curran, S.J., president of Rockhurst University, discussed his path toward leading a Jesuit school, first as a member of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, and later as a Jesuit, in a new interview with the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU). We were inspired by his 'vision through mission', and thank ACCU for allowing us to share Fr. Curran's words in a new post on our blog, JesuitEducated.
