Jesuit International Learning

The 27 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States are located in 17 states and the District of Columbia. The distinctiveness of a Jesuit education stems from its deep-rooted history and a mission grounded in faith and intellectual rigor. American Jesuit colleges and universities are part of a network of approximately 188 Jesuit institutions of higher learning throughout the world, thus having the distinction of being at once local, national and international.
