Abstract Jesuit universities, in as much as they share the mission of the Society of Jesus, must respond, in the framework of their academic commitment, to the social and ecological fractures that proliferate in our global society. This entails a permanent endeavor for all university activities to internalize the mission of the Society of Jesus. This paper suggests some implications of that mission regarding University life. The mission of the Jesuits is considered in relation to recent General Congregations and in the scientific and cultural context in which this adaptation, or internalization, occurs. We will consider how Jesuit cultural and spiritual traditions can illuminate ecology and social justice issues, and the implications of this mission in terms of the teaching, learning, research, and social outreach of Jesuit universities.
