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:

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.
