Heart of the University, Faculty Retreat Series 2013-2014
Dr. Jose Lopez reflects on Authenticity and Balance: Exploring Crossroads Where Religion and Science Merge in the first of four retreats for faculty and administrators of all faiths.
The Heart of the University Retreat Series gives faculty and administrators of all faiths the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership.
The first retreat, given by Dr. Jose Lopez on the theme of Authenticity and Balance: Exploring Crossroads Where Religion and Science Merge will be held on Thursday, October 10, 2013, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Chancellor’s Suite, Student Center.
Religion and science are two of the most powerful forces that continue to shape human history and civilization. Both of these subjects historically share a common origin. In this retreat we will explore the emergence of science from important questions posed by religion. Many paradigm-shifting revelations have emerged from the interplay of religion and science since both are seeking to understand the authentic truth and acquire further knowledge.

He is a world-renown expert in atmospheric plasmas and in particular microplasmas, and some of his discoveries and ideas have led to new environmental technologies.
