Throughout history, Jesuit education has helped many young men and women become competent, compassionate and committed persons. The education ministry is still very relevant for the Society of Jesus. Just in Europe, there are 159 Jesuit schools that continue to form more than 150,000 students through Ignatian pedagogy and spirituality.
JECSE works to promote collaboration between our schools in the Euro-Mediterranean provinces. It does so by organizing formation seminars, conferences and meetings for the members involved in the education apostolate.
JECSE seeks to:
- Promote the ideals and practices of Jesuit education in Europe,
- Encourage networking, co-operation and exchanges between Jesuit educational institutions…
- Support its members in their mission
- Reflect on Ignatian identity of our institutions
