Community Conversation with Strategic Plan Working Group #1: Reimagining Jesuit Education

About this event

This community discussion is part of a series of planned conversations around the Strategic Plan organized by the working groups in conjunction with the Strategic Plan Advisory Council (SPAC) and the Provost's Office. The primary goal is to hear from as many folks as possible on the issue of what a reimagined Jesuit Education at USF could look like, and how existing Jesuit values and pedagogy could be incorporated in new, or already existing, curricular and co-curricular ways to help USF meet future challenges and evolving local and global contexts. We will collectively consider questions such as: What do you think needs to be “reimagined” in the USF curriculum? What do you think needs to be protected from change? What new or reimagined co-curricular programs do you think should be considered? How might we better integrate diversity, inclusion, and global initiatives into a USF Jesuit education and faculty and staff hiring?
