AJCU Leadership Programs

With the support of the presidents of the 28 colleges and universities, the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities offers two dynamic leadership programs to its members: The Ignatian Colleagues Program (ICP) and The AJCU Seminar on Higher Education Leadership.

The Ignatian Colleagues Program (ICP), an 18-month program, seeks to develop Ignatian partners in Jesuit higher education who are capable of and committed to assuming leadership within the Ignatian spiritual and educational heritage and who will sustain their school’s Jesuit Catholic character into the future.

The AJCU Seminar, a week-long program, is designed to address the many issues facing current academic and administrative leaders and the developing leaders who will guide Jesuit institutions deep into the 21st century.

Edward Cullen, Co-Founder, Bridge-USA, Fordham University '09
