JASPA Online Enrichment Series: Ignatian Examen of Racism & White Privilege

Part 1 of a 3-Part Series (Zoom Link)

JASPA invites you to join us for the kick-off of our three-part online enrichment series exploring our mission-based commitment to Anti-Racism. Together, we will use these opportunities to explore our call to anti-racist action through three lenses: (1) As individual student affairs professionals, (2) As contributors to specific student affairs functional areas, (3) And as community members of Jesuit institutions.

Our first session will be held on: Thursday, February 4 | 2:00-3:00pm EST (11:00am-12:00pm PST)

This virtual event will provide an opportunity for personal and professional reflection utilizing the Ignatian Examen of Racism and White Privilege. 

Marybeth Kearns-Barrett -- Director of the Office of the College Chaplains at College of the Holy Cross -- will facilitate an interactive Ignatian prayer inviting us to look at our own experiences of racism and white privilege as we consider how they have impacted who we are and how they can shape the way we move forward.

People of all faiths and beliefs are welcome to participate!  In advance of our time together, we invite you to enter our reflection through the words of Fr. Bryan Massingale -- theology professor at Fordham University -- in his piece “The assumptions of white privilege and what we can do about it" in the National Catholic Reporter.

Please plan to join us for part one of our series and look for more information regarding the remaining two sessions via your email.
