The goal of Jesuit Education is to grow a whole person through its signature Ignatian Pedagogy. When entering Indonesia, it surely has its own uniqueness. Thus, this study aims at exploring how the Ignatian Pedagogy is implemented in teaching and learning process in a Jesuit University in Indonesia. This qualitative study used questionnaires to collect the data from 613 students. The results revealed some significant findings related to each element. In Context, the lecturers have made some efforts to understand the students’ backgrounds through direct interaction in and outside the classroom as well as through social media. In Experience, the lecturers mostly used discussions to trigger students’ engagement. Moreover, the way the lecturers asked the students to do the Reflection was quite varied, ranging from giving written guiding questions to spontaneously inviting the students to do it. In Action, the lecturers asked the students to make some plans, do positive activities and express individual intent. The Evaluation done includes cognitive, affective and psychomotor ones. Suggesting holistic collaborative and contextual education, the findings also reflect the characteristics of education as outlined in the Regulation from the Minister of Education and Culture of Indonesia. Yet, cura personalis seems to be challenging to be implemented in Indonesia.
