Faith, Discovery, Service: Perspectives on Jesuit Education

Excerpt

Francis M. Lazarus

On October 6, 1990, the Reverend Albert J. Diulio, S.J., was inaugurated as the twenty-first president of Marquette University. In his inaugural address, Father DiUlio called upon the assembled University community to continue to expand its dedication to the three fundamental Ignatian principles upon which Marquette was founded: discovery, faith, and service. The Presidential Inaugural Committee, acting in cooperation with the Office of Academic Affairs at Marquette, offers this volume of Inaugural Lectures as both a tribute to Father DiUlio and a reflection on the application of these principles to contemporary Jesuit education.

It is particularly noteworthy that Father DiUlio's inauguration and the Inaugural Lecture Series took place during the 1990-1991 academic year, for that year was also a worldwide Ignatian Year, commemorating and celebrating the five-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Ignatius Loyola and the four-hundred-fiftieth anniversary of his founding of the Society of Jesus. In this context, these lectures take on a larger purview than that of a simple institutional Festschrift. They become a part of the legacy of Ignatius's transforming vision and the most recent contributions to a centuries-old Jesuit ministry in education.
