Spring 2014: God and the University

Religion in Higher Education

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.

Encountering God within the Ignatian Tradition

Ignatian Retreat for Santa Clara University Faculty and Staff

Encountering God within the Ignatian Tradition 

June 20-22, 2014 

Villa Maria del Mar, Santa Cruz, CA

Facilitated by:

Robert W. Scholla, S.J. and Sarita Tamayo-Moraga, Ph.D.

As a university community we have engaged the provocative question raised by the Bannan Institute this year: “What Good Is God?”  This Ignatian Retreat offers university faculty and staff an opportunity for personal prayer and reflection as we begin our summer months.  Where has God been laboring in our work and service at Santa Clara University?  How might divine love and life desire to heal and to enliven us?

The sound and beauty of the ocean at Villa Maria del Mar offers us a privileged place and a grace-filled backdrop for our prayer and reflection.
