Washington Brings Message of Social Justice, Compassion
St. Ignatius of Loyola said, “Go forth and set the world on fire?” Are you ready to be an instrument of change? Will you bring light to our community and stand up for compassion and justice, and embrace our diversity?
On Thursday, Aug. 28 at 3:45 p.m., all students are invited to hear the inspirational words of Jamie Washington, M.Div., Ph.D., the founder of the Social Justice Training Institute. The talk will take place in Grewen Auditorium.

He also serves as the president and founder of the Washington Consulting Group, a Baltimore-based multicultural organizational development firm. He holds a Ph.D. in College Student Development from the University of Maryland College Park and a Masters of Divinity from Howard University School of Divinity, with a concentration on Pastoral Care and Christian Social Ethics.
