The Bannan Forum of the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education collaboratively leads faculty, staff, administrators, and students in advancing the Jesuit, Catholic vocation of Santa Clara University as a transformative social force, building a more humane, just, and sustainable world.

Focused on (though not limited to) the intersection of faith, culture, and questions of justice and reconciliation, Bannan Forum programming promotes and makes accessible the comprehensive humanism of the Jesuit intellectual heritage, bringing it to bear on contemporary global realities. Through public events, print publications, and digital offerings, the Forum brings the Santa Clara University community and the larger public in Silicon Valley and beyond into conversations emerging from SCU’s distinctive character and mission.
