STUDENT INTERFAITH ORGANIZATION (ISO)

SJU encourages all students to further their own spiritual growth and religious faith during their time at SJU. Because it is a university in the Catholic and Jesuit traditions, SJU celebrates religious diversity, encouraging individuals and groups to practice their own faith as they so choose. Students are encouraged to participate in interfaith events in order to grow in understanding of others’ faith traditions, and to grow in appreciation of their own faith tradition. Meetings and events are held throughout the academic year.

Women's Leadership Initiative

WLI encourages and empowers students who identify as female to be leaders wherever they may find themselves. We promote a safe gender-inclusive environment that fosters conversations about feminist issues. The initiative identifies and mentors female students who want to take an active leadership role. WLI members have the opportunity to plan events, coordinate guest speaker engagements, and attend conferences and workshops that focus on the importance of women in leadership positions. Practice leadership skills with an academic focus.

Students will:

  • Network with peer and professional leaders on and off campus
  • Learn about the importance of women in both the public and private sectors
  • Analyze the theoretical, empirical, and practical implications of women’s leadership
  • Prepare other female students to lead
  • Promote gender parity
  • Develop a working knowledge of feminist identities
