Higher Education with the charism of Marcellin


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.

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.
