The aim of this article is to familiarize readers with and further explore the Society of Jesus’ (Jesuit) university mission, as well as identify its key challenges and prior- ities. We will also highlight the importance of the Ledesma-Kolvenbach Paradigm, as a reference when addressing the mission of Jesuit universities and business schools and, in particular, the type of person the Society aspires to educate. For this, we review texts from the most recent General Congregations (GC) as well as the key speeches given by the Society’s last two Superior Generals; their teachings serving as a “source of authority.”
