Icam on the move – 2025 Strategic goals

The latest strategic directions of Icam are guided by the desire to take into account the current ecological issues which manifest through three major crises: an environmental crisis, a social crisis, and a crisis of meaning and hope.

The directions adopted below intend to help respond to these challenges by strengthening the following Icam capabilities:

1 - Drawing on our rich Jesuit education roots in the face of the challenges of today's world

 

  • Ignatian pedagogy values an integrative, comprehensive view on social issues. As such, Icam uses integral ecology as a guideline for our institutional decisions and dialogue with our stakeholders.
  • Utilization of practices that promote solutions having an impact in terms of sustainable development and social justice: a capacity for ethical judgment; a potential for hope
  • Co-responsibility with our students for all school activities

 

2 - Strengthen synergies with the business world

  • Promoting research in 3 main areas: Energy, Materials, Societal and technological transition of companies
