Heartland-Delta Faculty Conversations 2012
Jesuit, Catholic and Green: Thematic Explorations of Environmental Sustainability, Social Justice, and Respect for Life
February 24 -26, 2012
Water Tower Campus
The 35th General Congregation of the Society of Jesus calls our attention to the ecological and environmental challenges of our day, and asks us “to appreciate more deeply our covenant with creation” (D 3, 36) suggesting that such an attentiveness “touches the core of our faith in and love for God” (D 3, 3.)
To this end, Faculty Conversations, 2012 will consider our Universities engagement of this pressing issue for Jesuit higher education and the global community through a consideration of the themes of social justice and the value of life as they bear upon the charge of GC 35. We look forward to hosting you at Loyola University Chicago. We hope you can join us.
