Dear SJEM Sponsored Institution Leaders,
Each year, SJEM sponsored institutions are asked to provide an annual report asking you and your community to reflect upon and provide evidence of both your Catholic identity and mission/charism being lived out on your campuses. Such an opportunity asks of us to review not only our strengths, but also the spaces and places that we are capable of growing. SJEM asks that you consider, very honestly, aspects for celebration and aspects for attention and possibility. We also hold on to an ongoing desire to know how SJEM can continue to grow in a manner that serves our sponsored institutions in supporting your work of mission and Catholic identity.
Please respond to each of the following questions in a PDF or Word document. Completed reports can be submitted using the form below; they should not exceed 3 pages in total for all written content, and although not required, may additionally include the submission of pictures, or other evidence that may support your report. All photos should be submitted in jpeg format and include photo credit and captions. (Please note: all report content, although not comprehensively, will be subject to use for SJEM purposes in our annual report to the Vatican and SJEM newsletters.)
The 2023 deadline for submission is: March 1
2023 questions to respond to:
- Explain how the environment at your institution “challenges the students to grow in faith, knowledge, and respect for self and others in service of the dear neighbor without distinction.” (Article II, Section 2.4, Statutes of SJEM) Please provide 2 specific examples.
- In reviewing your resources, how do they reflect the mission and charism in the ways in which they are applied and/or allocated?
- Do you have any issues or concerns at your institution for which SJEM may be able to provide some assistance?
