Commissions (Charters & Teams)

The AJCU Faith, Justice & Reconciliation Assembly will highlight not only the work on justice taking place at our Jesuit institutions, but also engage the work of justice with faith and reconciliation. Six Commissions (teams of faculty and staff across the AJCU network) have been working together since Spring 2023 on major issues of faith, justice, and reconciliation affecting AJCU institutions. Each Commission will present their work at the Assembly, with time for participant engagement and dialogue. Commission themes are:

  • Citizenship and Democracy: Exercising Individual Freedom for the Common Good
  • Student Spiritual Growth and Mental Health: Toward a Hope-filled Future
  • Prison Education: A Call to Conversion in Our Shared Humanity
  • Laudato Sí’: Advancing a Shared Agenda for our Common Home (click here to download Laudato Si’ Commission Letter on COP 28)
  • Justice and Reconciliation: Addressing the Legacy of Slavery and Oppression by Jesuit Institutions
  • The Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm: Responding to Students and their Hungers
