Mapping the World of Jesuit Universities, Schools and Education Projects 

New Printable Map



When coming to Jesuit schools and universities many students and their parents wonder how many Jesuit education institutions there are in the world. Some guess 8, some say 20, when in fact there are more than 2700 in our global network! This is the point where the effect and illustrative power of maps come into play.

The newly published printable map called the “Jesuit World of Universities and Schools” (2020) brings together the different Jesuit Education networks of the six Jesuit Conferences worldwide. This map was developed as a collaboration between the Secretariat for Higher Education and the Secretariat for Education (Secondary and Pre-secondary) of the Society of Jesus and produced by the International Association of Jesuit Universities (IAJU) and Educate Magis. The map is available in three languages (English, Spanish, French).

Learn more about the features of this combined map and how it illustrates the rich heritage of the Society of Jesus of educating persons for and with others across the world. Read article
