Collaborating from a Distance
Jesuit institutions in the United States are responding to the complex reality of globalization in dynamic ways. Evidence of their commitment to international education can be found in the global partnerships, programs and activities that they develop on a consistent basis.
U.S. Jesuit institutions have forged relationships and partnerships with many international Jesuit institutions around the world. Learn more in the publications below:
The Jesuit Distance Education Network (JesuitNET) was created in 1999 as a collaborative effort of the U.S. Jesuit colleges and universities. JesuitNET’s mission is to support AJCU members and affiliates as they develop, share and deliver a broad range of online academic programs and services for a national and international audience. The characteristics of Jesuit education - academic rigor, personalized instruction, service learning and ethics - form the core of the courses and programs developed and delivered through JesuitNET. JesuitNET is divided into both JesuitNET Design Services and JesuitNET Global.
In partnership with our sister-association for Jesuit higher education Latin America, AUSJAL, AJCU has developed the a summary webpage highlighting the range of research areas in which AUSJAL is currently working. The link can be found here.
The AJCU Study Abroad Consortium is comprised of Jesuit institutions that have agreed to share study abroad programs. Members of the consortium that have signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for shared programming are eligible to have their program information listed on this website. Some of the benefits to AJCU institutions to share programs include mission-driven programming, more study abroad offerings for students, and possible cost savings.
This listing features the regions where Jesuit institutions are located around the world. Several Jesuit institutions in the U.S. have established partnerships with Jesuit institutions in other countries to advance a greater understanding and appreciation for global concerns. Those partnerships are listed here as well.
