Imagine for a moment the stepping stones of an academic career: a passion or deep interest, graduate school, a teaching appointment, pre-tenure, research, grant-writing, tenure, mentoring new faculty, administrative work, full-professor, emeritus status.
Or follow another path when a professional brings skills and experience to the mix valued by a variety of disciplines and also important to the learning process of the students, perhaps full-time or maybe as an adjunct or part-time faculty member.
The vocation journey of the teacher/scholar is challenging yet filled with opportunities. Manresa for Faculty supports faculty members on the various steps of their careers in a Catholic, Jesuit University. Manresa (Man-ree-suh) is a town in Spain where St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, spent a year in prayer and discernment about the future direction of his own vocation path.
Manresa for Faculty accomplishes these goals through seminars, workshops, panel discussions, and faculty learning communities.
