Heart of the University, Faculty Retreat Series 2016-2017
The Heart of the University Retreat Series is offered primarily for the faculty who, as the heart of the University, express its deepest convictions by their teaching. It is about the human heart as a place of encounter with God.
These retreats will give faculty and administrators of faith the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The spirit of the series is captured by the Latin "cor ad cor loquitur," heart speaks to heart, which was the motto of John Henry Newman, author of The Idea of a University. The theme of this year's retreat series is Education as Spiritual Paradigm, which will be explored in the following presentations:
- Education and Truth: Searching for God in the Methodology of Science
- Education and Goodness: Examining the Role of Knowledge in Eternal and Legal Obligations
- Education and Beauty: How is Wisdom Linked with Beauty?
- Education and Grace: The Ordinary and Extraordinary Gifts that Shape our Lives
