Principles of the Network of Institutions of Higher Education

Marist The International Marist Network of Institutions of Higher Education is a weave of works of the  Shared Mission of brothers and lay persons which operate in various Provinces of the Marist Institute. Each IHE is a node of the network, with drives that are multidirectional in its inter-institutional communication, and unidirectional in relationship with a co-ordinating node for specific tasks and functions collectively agreed upon.

Relations between the IHE which compose the Network and which in their turn justify it, are based on a series of principles, such as the following:

  1.  Identity. The Marist charism, poured out on the Church by the Holy Spirit through Saint Marcellin Champagnat, shapes our desires, being, and occupations in such a way that we know we possess a clear, valuable and particular educational proposal.
  2. Belonging. Sharing the Marist charism creates a feeling of belonging, which generates relationships of fraternity, service and collaboration. In addition to mutual support, the spirit of belonging is a source of motivation for the Higher Education communities of the Network.
  3. Equality. All the members of the Network enjoy the same rights and obligations within this grouping, independently of their development and complexity.
  4. Participation.  All the members of the Network are committed to contribute, according to their possibilities, resources, experiences, and attainments of all kinds for the functioning and enrichment of the  same.
