There is a startling epidemic of loneliness and disconnection today on college campuses and across U.S. society. A crisis which has for years threatened individual and collective wellbeing only worsened and became more glaring under the weight of the pandemic.

What core concepts and best practices can help us to cultivate deeper experiences of connection and meaningful community on campuses that are marked by enduring siloes, as well as by greater diversity than ever before? How might Jesuit mission and identity become a catalyst for promoting a sense of true belonging not only among students, but also among faculty and staff?
