Ignatian Center Student Leadership Programming 

The Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education offers a host of leadership opportunities for Santa Clara University students across all disciplines. Be it summer fellowships with community agencies, facilitating an immersion experience for peers, or interning with a local nonprofit agency, Ignatian Center students are challenged to hone their leadership skills, deepen their understanding of social justice issues, and reflect on their responsibility and impact in the world. We need to continue to scale up our programming to ensure we are providing these essential development opportunities for the next generation of leaders.


As an immersion trip coordinator and Jean Donovan Fellow Srisruthi shared that “being involved in the Ignatian Center really formed who I have become. Studying philosophy and my Ignatian Center experience gave me an avenue to explore questions and make progress.”

His fellowship helping to drive more equitable healthcare at the non-profit D-Rev allowed Seamus “to grow in the virtues of compassion and empathy. It showed me new perspectives about how connected my life is to that of others. It taught me about my privilege. And last but not least it nurtured my exploration of the meaning of vocation.”

The Ignatian Fellowship offers SCU undergraduates the opportunity to deepen their commitment to social justice through a community-based learning experience. Alexis’s fellowship with the Northern California Innocence Project helped her to practice gratitude and find joy.
