About our Speaker:
Rev. Steve Katsouros, S.J., is the founding dean and executive director of Arrupe College at Loyola University Chicago. Arrupe is a two-year college at Loyola’s Water Tower Campus that continues the Jesuit tradition of offering a rigorous liberal arts education to a diverse population, many of whom are the first in their family to pursue higher education. Arrupe College has graduated two classes since opening in 2015.
Prior to arriving in Chicago, Fr. Katsouros served as the director of the Institute for Catholic Educational Leadership and associate dean of the School of Education at the University of San Francisco. From 2002 until 2011, Fr. Katsouros was president of Loyola, a co-ed Jesuit high school in New York City. His doctorate, from Columbia University Teachers College, is in organizational leadership; his research interests are leadership; governance; and institutional performance. Fr. Katsouros is an alum of Good Counsel High School in suburban Maryland. After graduating from the University of Maryland in College Park, he was a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Fr. Katsouros counseled runaways at Covenant House in Times Square, taught at the first Nativity-model school on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and co-founded another Nativity school in Harlem. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1987. He was ordained in 1998 and celebrated a first Mass at Our Lady of Grace at Leisure World, where his mother resides.
Currently, Fr. Katsouros is a trustee on the boards of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, Chicago; Regis University, Denver; Saint Mary’s College, South Bend, Indiana; and Sacred Heart Schools, Chicago. He delivered the Cardinal Bernardin lecture at Georgetown University in March, 2017. His book about the launch of Arrupe College, “Come to Believe: How the Jesuits Are Reinventing Education Again,” was published by Orbis Press in June 2017.
