Magis Mentors

One student helping another student study

Magis, a Latin word meaning “more” or “greater” is related to the Jesuit Motto, AMDG (Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam), “for the greater glory of God.” Fr. Bryan Massingale describes Magis as the inner longing—a sacred, holy restlessness for that which is always out of our reach, but which beckons and allures us, and entices us to reach beyond where we are now. Magis is an inner dynamism of spirit that leaves us dissatisfied with the way things are, and calls us forward into the deep. A fundamental Jesuit value, striving for Magis encourages each person to try to do the more, the better, the greater – for God and our neighbor, not for ourselves.

Magis Mentors is an initiative to express gratitude for the members of our community who strive to live into the Magis. We invite you to nominate a student, faculty, staff or administrator to be honored as a Magis Mentor. The 2022-23 Magis Mentors will be honored during Mission Week in March 2023.

The deadline to nominate is March 15.
