The Art of Neighboring

Social Concerns Seminar

The Art of Neighboring Seminar aims to help students wrestle with the major questions and commitments required to authentically enact the Catholic Social Tradition throughout their life. Specifically, this course pays attention to the virtue of life lived within a context (place) and within the context of community (people). Engaging the concrete realities of neighborhood life, students will study the practice of CST and formulate conviction (leading to lived commitments) for life in pursuit of justice and the Common Good. This course does not have a Fall break immersion.

Class Dates: Fridays: 10:30–11:45 a.m., September 17–November 19, 2021
