Supporting Ignatian Leadership and Academic Assistance at

U of D Jesuit

U of D Jesuit has enjoyed more than 140 years of Jesuit leadership. Leadership marked by love for our students, devotion to our mission in Detroit, and our commitment to form men for others for the greater glory of God. This leadership style, modeled after St. Ignatius of Loyola, permeates the U of D Jesuit community. It shapes classrooms, administration, student activities, athletics, and retreats. It has guided us through all our formative institutional decisions.

To ensure this leadership style remains at the helm, U of D Jesuit participates in the Jesuit Schools Network Seminars in Ignatian Leadership. This three year program, designed for Jesuit high school employees, combines Ignatian spirituality, leadership theory, and best practices, to form leaders who will guide Jesuit education for generations to come.

Watch to find out how Ignatian Leadership Seminars Impact our Faculty and Staff.

Magis Ride donations help fund University of Detroit Jesuit faculty and staff participating in the Ignatian Leadership Seminars. With your help we can meet our goal to maximize participation by enrolling three employees every year.

Additionally, your donation can be directed to help fund the U of D Jesuit Magis Program for academic assistance. For seven years, the Magis Program has helped our students reach their full academic potential by establishing relationships, teaching academic responsibility, and daily tutoring.



Join us for the first Magis Ride Fall Ramble on Saturday, October 19, 2019. The Fall Ramble is a 25-mile bike ride through Detroit, beginning and ending at U of D Jesuit. The ride starts at 9:30 a.m. and a post-ride lunch will be provided.

There is a suggested $10 donation to help fund the Magis program for academic assistance and Ignatian Leadership training for our faculty and staff. You can make your donation using the online form below.

Please contact Nicholas.rennpage@uofdjesuit for registration and questions.

Onward, toward the Magis!
