The Jesuits

Since its inception, the administration of Newman College has been entrusted to the Society of Jesus. "To find God in all things" was the aim of St Ignatius Loyola and his Jesuit companions, who first formed a community at the University of Paris early in the 16th century.

Jesuit education has always been world-affirming, encouraging a study of all reality and seeking to produce wisdom.

Jesuits have long stressed the humanities, because in discovering the truly human we also discover the divine. But the Jesuit spirit equally involves a bold engagement in the world, an exploring of new ideologies, new technologies and new aspirations.
