Faculty Retreat Series 2022-2023

Heart of the University, Faculty Retreat Series 2022-2023

The Heart of the University Retreat Series is offered primarily for the faculty who, as the heart of the University, express its deepest convictions by their teaching. It is about the human heart as a place of encounter with God.

These retreats will give faculty and administrators of faith the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The spirit of the series is captured by the Latin "cor ad cor loquitur," heart speaks to heart, which was the motto of John Henry Newman, author of The Idea of a University. This year's retreat series is The Theological Virtues as Spiritual Paradigm.

  1. Faith and the Academic Disciplines: Insight, a Well-Formed Conscience, and Mistaken Beliefs
  2. Hope and the University Mission: Self Transcendence and Transformation
  3. Charity and Practical Solutions: The Role of Mission and Ministry in a Global Society
  4. Virtues and the Ecumenical Movement: The Healing of Christian Divisions

The Faculty Retreat Series includes the following directors and dates, all held from 9 to 11 a.m.
