About JUHAN

The  Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network ( JUHAN) was launched in 2006 by Fairfield, Fordham, and Georgetown Universities as a way to raise awareness on Jesuit campuses of the meaning of humanitarian response and its implications for the Jesuit ideology of “men and women for others” as well as to jointly address the humanitarian needs of those who are suffering. Since its founding, the network has grown to include Jesuit institutions from across the 28 schools in the US and internationally from the Philippines to Qatar; Nicaragua to Beirut. During Superior General Adolfo Nicolas’ remarks in Mexico City in 2010, he noted, “If each university, working by itself as a proyecto social, is able to accomplish so much good in society, how much more can we increase the scope of our service to the world if all the Jesuit institutions of higher education become, as it were, a single global proyecto social?”
