WUJA logoUniversity of Detroit Mercy was well-represented at the World Union of Jesuit Alumni Congress, held at John Carroll University in Cleveland, June 28-July 2. The organization is dedicated to celebrating Jesuit education and Ignatian spirituality. See what faculty members presented at the Congress here and read reflections of the event.

Every four years, WUJA invites all alumni of Jesuit educational institutions to take part in a great world encounter. Each congress is held on a general subject linked with Jesuit education and its values. The different world regions organize the congress alternately, as defined in the statutes.

At the end of a congress, WUJA’s General Assembly votes some resolutions about the theme of the congress and the main guidelines of the world movement and elects the members of its world bodies (Executive Committee and Council).

The theme of the 2017 WUJA Congress, as voted on at the 2013 Congress, was “Uniting Our Jesuit Frontiers: To Know God, To Love God, To Serve God.”
