On May 28, 29 and 30, 2019, Patrick Byrne, Ph. D., will facilitate the 21st annual Faculty Summer Seminar, Ethics and Our Disciplines, co-sponsored by the Center for Catholic Studies and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership, with support from the Toth/Lonergan Endowed Chair in Interdisciplinary Studies.
The theme of this workshop will be an approach to ethics that places practices of discernment at its center. Participants in the faculty seminar will be encouraged to consider the various ways in which discernment can enrich their own specialized work and facilitate cooperative ventures with others.
Since 1998, the Center for Catholic Studies has provided the opportunity for faculty to reflect in depth on topics central to the Catholic intellectual tradition. This seminar is open to all administrators and faculty. Interested faculty, staff, and administration who wish to apply for the seminar should indicate their interest to Francia Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than May 13, 2019.
