As an implementation component of the Ignatian Colleagues Program, each participant will work with his or her campus coordinator to design a work-related* project that advances the institutionís mission in light of what he or she is appropriating in the program. To the degree possible, the project should be implemented (in whole or in part) before the end of the program and will be reviewed by the ICP office within a year of the programís completion as a meanís of program assessment.

*Participants are encouraged to choose a project that is part of the work they do in their current position, to which they bring a greater Ignatian intentionality that reflects what they are learning in the program.
Sample ICP Projects
1. A nursing department head is redesigning a program that places nursing undergraduates in a clinical rotation on city streets with the homeless to include intentional reflection and social analysis rooted in teachings on social justice that and solidarity with the poor.
2. A Student Affairs administrator is designing a series of semester-long staff development seminars in which division members explore the role of mission across the division of Student Affairs.
3. A School of Education dean is infusing an existing two-year program for part-time faculty with new elements of Ignatian pedagogy and spirituality.
4. Two deans from one institution are working together to invite their respective faculties to learn about the Ignatian pedagogical paradigm and apply it creatively to within their specific disciplines and actual courses.
5. An administrator in advancement is looking at how Catholic social teaching and principles of solidarity and justice can strategically guide investment and fundraising/friendraising efforts.
6. A graduate school administrator is investigating ways to integrate mission and identity more explicitly into graduate education.
