Click here to learn about the recent AJCU Facilities, Public Safety, Sustainability & Emergency Management Conference, held at Loyola University Maryland in April 2015.

Conference Mission Statement: To create a safe and collegial environment for leadership from AJCU institutions to share best practices and opportunities for improvement related to public safety, facilities and sustainability that are consistent with and affirm our Jesuit tradition.

This conference is comprised of facilities, public safety and sustainability professionals at the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S. They meet annually at an AJCU institution and engage in conversations about facilities, public safety and sustainability throughout the year via AJCU listserv.

Incorporated into the programming of annual conferences is significant time spent on the campus of the host institution so that participants may take away first-hand understanding of the host institution’s operation from a facilities, security and sustainability perspective. While mindful of the varying nuances of each campus, over the years it has been affirming to conference participants to know that others are facing similar challenges, especially as they work to provide similar services to campus communities in a manner that is consistent with Jesuit tradition.



Quote of the week

“As a product of Catholic schools, continuing my education at a Jesuit institution was a logical part of my journey. The emphasis on using your talents and skills to improve the lives and conditions of others, rather than focusing on personal enrichment, resonated deeply with me. I truly believe that living my life in service of others - both personally and professionally - has allowed me to thrive in unimaginable ways.”
Major General Marcia Anderson, Creighton University '79
