Saint Joseph’s University Faculty Justice Award: “If the measure and purpose of our (Jesuit) universities lies in what the students become, then the faculty are at the heart of our universities. Their mission is tirelessly to seek the truth and to form each student into a whole person of solidarity who will take responsibility for the real world.” – Peter Hans Kolvenbach, SJ The Service of Faith and the Promotion of Justice in American Jesuit Higher Education
