The Gail and Francis Slattery Center
for the Ignatian Humanities

The Ignatian Humanities seek that inner moment when the head, the heart, and the soul converge to embrace the good, the true, and the beautiful – and there find God in all things. 

The Ignatian Humanities lie at the very heart of our Catholic and Jesuit University. St. Ignatius was convinced that God can be found in all things and that such a discovery begins with honing the imagination

Joseph G. Marina, S.J., President

The Ignatian Humanities are the heart of the matter for us. Engaging the great books and ideas are how we build contemplatives in action, how we inspire students to go set the world on fire.

The late Scott R. Pilarz, S.J., 27th President of the University
