Awards

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

Annually the Office of the Provost requests nominations for the Saint Joseph’s University Faculty Justice Award. SJU’s Faculty Justice Award recognizes a faculty member who demonstrates extraordinary leadership and sustained commitment to issues of faith and justice through their teaching, research and service.

Fr. Edward J. Brady S.J. Faith in Action Service Award: The Fr. Edward J. Brady, SJ Faith in Action service award acknowledges a Saint Joseph’s University faculty member whose time and effort have constituted a “significant contribution” to fulfilling the Faith-Justice Institute’s mission to “promote social analysis and critical thought around faith and justice issues” and embodies the Ignatian ideals.
