The pending sale of Joe Louis Park and the Johnson Recreation Center to U of D Jesuit is great news for our students and the community surrounding the park.
The project name is J3, which stands for Joe Louis, Johnson, and Jesuits – a testimonial to the mission of the Jesuits united with the heritage of the neighborhood. J3 will give us another platform for community involvement through mentoring, tutoring, service, and sports. This park and recreational facility, just a few blocks from our main campus, will offer our young men a unique student experience, unlike any other in Metro Detroit.

“Our prime educational objective is to form ‘Men for Others’ for the greater honor and glory of God”
Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
U of D Jesuit’s commitment to service and justice cannot be matched. Community service and outreach have played an integral role in our students’ education.
“U of D Jesuit's diversity, in addition to its high standard of education, is what sets it apart.”
David Bindon '15
“I’m proud to say that the quality of Jesuit education still persists. Your parents make huge sacrifices to make sure you can get the kind of education you get from the Jesuits. Be grateful. Take advantage. You will find that is of enormous value to you in all kinds of occasions later in life. This a wonderful opportunity…and I beg you to take advantage of it.”
Rep. John Dingell
