The Vision And The Mission Of The Ateneo
| '...the setting sun ends Ateneos day.' Xavier Hall at sunset
Rooted in the spirit of being Lux in Domino, light in the Lord, the Ateneo seeks to train men and women-for-others. In a document on the Ateneo’s future prepared for a presentation to the Loyola Schools faculty, Father President Bienvenido Nebres, S.J. writes:
“While many schools and apostolates aspire to form leaders, the Ignatian vision, as embodied in the dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises seeks to form people to develop their talents to the utmost and challenge them to the highest levels of service. Not just to seek the good, but the greater good. The magis. It thus has a tendency to form an elite—but its desire has been to form an apostolic elite, an elite for service.”
This, helps foster a deeper appreciation of the Ateneo de Manila’s Vision-Mission statement.
