Conversations on Jesuit Higher Education

An interesting magazine, available in any Jesuit library and eventually online. Each volume deals with a particular topic germane to our schools. The Fall '09 edition concentrates on Jesuit Schools and the Catholic Tradition, to which the Catholic Studies list to the left is from (click to make legible). The contacts are below if you're interested in receiving a subscription.

is published by the National Seminar on Jesuit Higher Education, which is jointly sponsored by the Jesuit Conference Board and the Board of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. Conversations was founded in 1992, as a concrete response to "Assembly 1989," a meeting of Jesuits and representatives from Jesuit higher education held at Georgetown University.

The magazine appears twice a year, in fall and spring. Principal distribution is to faculty, administrators, and staff of the twenty-eight Jesuit colleges and universities and two theologates in the United States. Each issue focuses on a theme discussed and decided upon by members of the National Seminar, who seek to discern topics and issues which will be of significance to the thirty institutions. The purpose of the magazine is to encourage serious conversations on the nature of Jesuit higher education, and ways in which all who participate in that mission may better achieve it.

Each issue of Conversations concentrates on a specific topic or theme. Online access is available via an issue-level Table of Contents (1992-2008) and a Topic/Title/Author Index (current 1992-2007).
