St. Ignatius Loyola Chair

Father Louis Caruana

The Rev. Louis Caruana, S.J.

The St. Ignatius Loyola Chair lecture will be lead by Father Louis Caruana, S.J. This lecture will be held in Fall 2020. Additional information will be shared as it is available.

The St. Ignatius Loyola Chair offers Jesuits from the USA and around the world the opportunity  to serve as “a distinguished professor who would contribute to and enhance the Catholic and Jesuit tradition of Fordham University.” Qualified and invited Jesuits hold the chair for 1-2 semesters of an academic year and are hosted by a university department or school.

During each semester of residency, the Loyola Chair Jesuit teaches one course (graduate or undergraduate) and delivers one public lecture at both the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses. The host department or school provides office space, as well as the support of a graduate assistant. Funding provided by the Chair covers (1) Per Diem at Spellman Hall Jesuit Community, (2) a salary paid to the recipient’s community, and (3) research/travel funds.
