Overview

Global challenges impact all of us and, therefore, solutions to these challenges require ways of thinking and acting that transcend national borders. In this new global context, there is an urgent need to form a different kind of political, civic and economic leader. We need to educate our students to be global citizens. Enlightened leaders who can succeed in a world that is constantly changing, citizens who continue to advocate for greater global openness, understanding, responsibility, communication and collaboration.

Magis Exchange Development

As a Jesuit Institution of higher learning, you are invited to participate in a unique multilateral program of student exchange. It seeks to build cohorts of student leaders who have participated in a semester-long academic international exchange and intership/service/volunteering program. This agreement is specially designed to promote Ignatian "men and women for others" in a cross-cultural setting.

The Task force is coordinating the project in which the six regions are represented. Coordinating universities:  Universidad Loyola Andalucía (Kircher Network), Creighton University (AJCU), Universidad Iberoamericana Puebla (AUSJAL), Kosyam Jesuit Institutes of Sciences (AJCU-AM), Sophia University (AJCU-AP) and St. Xavier's College (JHEASA).
