Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
We will meet June 5th, 19th, July 10th, 24th and August 7th from noon to 1pm in KN 420 (Campus Ministry Lounge) to engage in dialogue about Open Wide our Hearts (A pastoral letter against racism from the USCCB), Broken Ladder (BenU’s common freshmen read) and Out of Many Faiths (by Eboo Patel, founder of IFYC). Readings selections will be provided.
