Education Deans

The AJCU Education Deans Network is comprised of deans and professors for schools of education at Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States. They meet annually and maintain contact throughout the year via AJCU listserv. Discussions and actions are framed in ways consistent with Jesuit and Ignatian foundations.

The Education Deans Network has engaged in three major activities in recent years: a collaborative effort of Jesuit and other Catholic universities to formulate standards and benchmarks to guide Catholic P-12 schools; a survey of students and recent graduates regarding perceived value of attending a teacher education program at a Jesuit institution; and, the development of a white paper that clearly articulates the commitment of member institutions to Jesuit pedagogy and social justice.
