What is the Brussels Chapter? Brussels Chapter is a project aimed at enlarging the network of non-Belgian Jesuit Alumni in Brussels. Former students of Jesuit universities, colleges, secondary schools as well as Jesuit-led education programmes, will find a way to meet each other, share experiences and attend exclusive events.
Where did we find inspiration? Driven by the most successful Alumni networks, who managed to create a real family around the Alumni of Jesuit academic institutions, the Brussels Project dreams to allow former students to return to their Jesuit education in the enlarged and dynamic pattern of the European cities. The city is a key point for the Brussels Project: indeed, we felt the need to develop Alumni relations on a local basis but within a global framework.
What are the values of the Brussels Chapter? The Brussels Chapter will gravitate around the Society of Jesus, following its pillars in order to create a community. Being part of the project will be an unprecedented opportunity: you will nourish your inner as well as your intellectual side, and you will be able to discuss and reflect upon the Universal Apostolic Preferences (https://jesuits.global/en/uap).
Why be part of the Brussels Chapter? Joining the Brussels Chapter will be an all-encompassing experience. The Alumni will have a proper space to meet people who have received a similar education. Aside from socialization, the Brussels Chapter events will be an opportunity for professional networking and ongoing formation and, for us, a further chance to listen to your stories, your achievements and gain insider hints on how to further develop the Jesuit community.
Which steps for the future? As a new-born initiative, the Brussels Chapter is now working on the creation of a Brussels-based network of Alumni. We hope to increase our members and activities in the next years, and to be — who knows? — a replicable example for others. Do you want to share the Brussels Chapter Project with other Alumni?
