Regis University: Examen Mission Accomplished

Regis University recently completed a yearlong process to examine its efforts in carrying out their Jesuit mission. The results of this “institutional Examen” have won approval and even praise from Fr. Arturo Sosa, SJ, superior general of the Society of Jesus.

In a letter to Father Ronald Mercier, SJ, provincial of the U.S. Central Southern Province, Fr. Sosa, the worldwide leader of the Society of Jesus, affirmed the Examen’s success.

“I am happy to confirm the Jesuit and Catholic identity of Regis University,” Sosa wrote. He added praise of faculty and staff for their generous service and for their inclusive process.

The self-study began last fall and included more than two dozen small and large group discussions, an analysis of the responses received, and the involvement of a visiting peer team to provide their observations.

Faculty and administration at the university will continue to explore how they live the Jesuit mission, how they can continue to deepen their Jesuit identity. This approval only adds to their momentum, said Father Kevin Burke, SJ, vice president of mission.

“We remain committed to building a more just world and to creatively confront the challenges and embrace the opportunities along this journey,” he said.
