Early universities within the United States were largely established to advance the ideals of liberal education within a religious moral framework. In the last century, however, the academy has become widely ambivalent about the place of "God" in the broader discourse of a university. This quarter's lecture series will ask why, as we consider the role of religion within higher education in the United States.
McCarthy considers the role of "God" at academic institutions.
Panel featuring Julie Reuben, Jake Jacobsen, & Rhonda Hustedt discuss the impact of educational reforms on university religious engagement and the increasing importance of such engagement.
Panel featuring Brian Buckley, Kristin Kusanovich, Leilani Miller, & Tom Plante considering the question of "What good is God" from the perspective of their fields.
This presentation considers the role of religious belief on experiences of loss and death anxiety.
This retreat offers faculty and staff an opportunity for personal prayer and reflection as we begin the summer months.
