Note: Jesuit philosophy and spirituality are known for their meditative and reflective dimensions. Accordingly, the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius include the elements of examination, meditation, consideration, and contemplation. These can be summarized in a single term, reflection. Jesuit higher education all too often and too easily can be distracted by the business and processes of the academy, necessary but not sufficient to achieve its real goals of personal formation and transformation. It is reflection that aids these ultimate aims. In this inaugural issue, and in subsequent issues, JHE is pleased to present a reflective article that calls us to imagine, to reason and to engage our affective sensibilities; in other words, it is a call to deep reflection – without which Jesuit higher education remains incomplete. - General Editors
