The JWL Academic Program includes both credit-bearing and certificate-level courses.  Credit-bearing courses are offered with our partner, Regis University, which is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
Courses have been developed within the framework of Ignatian experience that seeks to develop the whole person, or cura personalis.  Within each course and across the curriculum, student learning is structured around the concepts of experience, reflection and action.


Experience begins with the recollection of previous learning of facts, feelings and insights that may be of relevance to the discipline. To this experience, discipline-specific information, skills and knowledge are added through the learning process.


As part of the learning process, students are invited to pause and consider questions of significance to themselves and their communities in the context of their discipline-specific coursework.

Action, Service, and Evaluation

At its culmination, participants are invited to consider how their new skills and knowledge can be put into action within their communities.
