Catholic University Immerses New Faculty in Catholic Intellectual Tradition

A conference last week at The Catholic University of America (CUA) helped recently hired professors learn more about the Catholic intellectual tradition, the University announced.

Faculty members from various schools at the University, including architecture, arts and sciences, philosophy, law, nursing, and theology, took part in the conference. According to the University, while many of the faculty that participated in the conference were not Catholic, they were “interested in how they may contribute to the University’s Catholic identity.”

The first goal of the University’s Strategic Plan is to ensure “the continuance and deepening of a strong, mission-based, academically rigorous Catholic identity.” The workshop served to engage new faculty members in this conversation.
