Ignatius Award

Spirit. Intellect. Purpose. All three are personified in SJU’s recipients of The Ignatius Award, established in the Ignatian year 1991. This award recognizes a graduate within the last 20 years who has devoted efforts in the service and promotion of Saint Joseph’s University and/or has lived a life of “service to others” consistent with the principles of Saint Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order.

Those we honor lead successful lives and act on their desire to accomplish the greater good. We are proud that they’ve continued to represent the ideals of Saint Joseph’s University as they’ve progressed in life. And, we are twice blessed by those who have made their mark on the University following their graduation to become lifelong members of our shared community.
