Fourth Year Cohort Formation

Fourth Year Cohort  Formation

Prepared with a firm foundation in Ignatian Studies, the Spiritual Exercises and discernment, the focus of this year’s formation is Ignatian Leadership.  Ignatius formed people to confidently and boldly step into the frontiers of education, the arts and sciences, ecology, politics, economics and religion to influence learning and living with an eye toward developing the whole person, contributing to making the world more humane.  Members of this cohort will continue to be formed for leadership, fortified with the necessary tools that distinguish Ignatian Leadership.

Outcomes At the conclusion of this year members of the cohort will identify, cultivate and appropriate the ethos and principles that distinguish an Ignatian Leader.
