The Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage


About the Center

The Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage exists to help faculty and students recognize and research Roman Catholic thought and its link to all academic disciplines in the university. It also seeks to convey that thought to other audiences inside and outside Loyola University Chicago.

Catholic Q&A: Why is a social justice agenda dangerous and risky for higher education?

Please join the Catholic Studies Minor and Rev. Michael J. Garanzini, S.J. (President and CEO, Loyola University Chicago) for the final Catholic Q&A of the spring semester.
