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 third retreat, given by Dr. Nancy Enright on the theme of Education and Beauty: How is Wisdom Linked with Beauty? will be held on Wednesday, February 8, 2017, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. in the Chancellor's Suite, Student Center.

"Late have I loved Thee, O Beauty, so ancient and so new!" Augustine expressed his profound gratitude and appreciation for his conversion after many years of essentially avoiding God's call to him. Once he surrendered to Christ, Augustine began to enjoy the redemption of beauty in his personal life. Similarly, Dante, also a lover of beauty, experienced its transformation through conversion. Education, at its best, involves a cultivation of wisdom that allows beauty to be revealed in its true nature, a signpost pointing to God, its Source. Readings for the retreat will include excerpts from Scripture, Augustine, Dante, Newman, and Ex corde Ecclesiae.

Nancy Enright is an Associate Professor of English and Catholic Studies, and Coordinator of Journey of Transformation.
