artifact description
Jesuit education challenges us to ask tough questions of ourselves and those around us. At Regis University in Denver, Colorado, the University’s mission encourages students to ask, “How ought we to live?” For some, the answer to this question can be found in a classroom, but, for others, the answer is more obvious in other settings. This question is especially prevalent as each year a group of students, faculty, and staff travel together to El Salvador to learn about important Jesuit history, diversity, solidarity, and justice, and how faith can play a role in the bigger picture of how each participant attempts to answer the question of how ought we to live. This unique learning opportunity impacts all those who participate in a way that changes them forever.
