Please send information to be included in our next Newsletter to email@example.com
Please enjoy the first AJUS Newsletter. AJUS was established first and foremost to promote cooperation and networking between the almost 200 institutions of higher education around the world that operate in the Jesuit Catholic tradition. So much great stuff is happening at all of our institutions and yet we know so little about one another. This Newsletter seeks to overcome that gap, or at least contribute to its reduction in size.
But this Newsletter can only succeed if it does indeed contain news about all the exciting developments that are happening in our institutions, the research projects launched, books published, degree programs initiated, conferences hosted, etc. We kindly ask that you submit items for possible inclusion in the next Newsletter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Short statements with a link to longer on-line documents would be preferred. However, if more detailed info is not yet available elsewhere on the web, AJUS can also create and host such a more detailed document on the AJUS web-site.
We hope you enjoy this first Newsletter and look forward to your submissions.
PS: This first AJUS Newsletter has been sent to all AJUS members. If you prefer not to receive future Newsletters, please use the "Unsubscribe" function
For more details about each of these events as well as for events later in 2015, please see the AJUS Events Calendar
