Shared Expectations

Ignatian Integration Essays

In your fall semester as a Manresa Scholar, you submit two Ignatian Integration Essays. Each prompt invites you to think critically and creatively about how your Manresa course connects to the Program's academic, spiritual, and social initiatives. Each essay is submitted to your Manresa professor through a central online form by the due date.

These two essays comprise 10% of your final Manresa course grade (5% per essay).

Integration Essay #1 Prompt (2-pages):
