Benefits of a Jesuit Education Jesuit institutions, known for their academic rigor and well-rounded education, are among the best in the world. Students of all faith and belief backgrounds find value in our commitment to intellectual exchange, social responsibility and push to lead for change. Our graduates frequently describe their experience as “life-changing.” A Jesuit education empowers you with the following: Critical-Thinking Skills– We challenge you to be curious, to ask questions and to solve problems, including the world’s most pressing issues. Strength as a Leader – You will come away with the ability to identify, analyze and reflect on the world’s problems, but more importantly, to take action. St. Ignatius inspires us to “Go forth and set the world on fire.” What’s more, you will have the ethical foundation from which to guide your decision-making. Passion for Learning – Our students develop the ability to learn across their lifetime — a critical component of success. The most effective leaders are able to continually learn from experience, absorb and apply new concepts and perspectives, as well as adapt to change. Global Understanding – Our inclusive community values the differences within each one of us. We provide students a deeper knowledge and skills for understanding issues beyond their own communities and strengthen their ability to work collaboratively to resolve those problems. Commitment to Social Justice – Social justice education and issues are integrated into our curriculum, offering you a unique perspective from which to see the world — particularly what life is like at the margins of society — and added motivation to work for the common good. Development of the Whole Person – Jesuit education is known for its personalized attention and concern for the whole person — mind, body and spirit. We not only develop individuals competent in their area of study, but strong in character and conviction as well. Valuable Connections – Earning a Regis degree will not only connect you with Regis alumni around the globe, but also 2.1 million alumni of the 28 U.S. Jesuit colleges and universities.
