The second retreat, given by Prof. Marisa Case on the theme of Hope and the University Mission: Self Transcendence and Transformation, will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2022, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Beck Rooms and via Microsoft Teams.

As educators, administrators, and staff who work in a Catholic university, it is critical to reflect on and to face our interiority with courage and humility. Knowing that individual authenticity influences students, colleagues, and the culture of the University, how do we communicate and inspire the theological virtue of hope that is the gift of God’s grace to us? How do we keep taking steps forward after so often falling? These are just two of the questions we hope to discuss as we consider what it means to be mindful of the transformation of goodness and truth over the consequences of sin and evil, and to more honestly live the mission of this University.

Marisa Case, MFA is the temporary Assistant Director of Student Support Services for Student Athletes. She is a GEM Fellow and a participant in the Praxis Program.
