FALL 2017

CGI-UGANDA: Women, the Church, and the Ecology of the Common Good 

Two credit | Interdisciplinary | Fully funded*

Women bear the brunt of climate change in Central Africa; does the Church offer them any recourse? CGI-Uganda is a graduate student-only social justice course that explores the Catholic social teaching principle of the common good from an ecological approach. It's immersion in Uganda will begin to enable students to understand the role that women and the Church share in modern Africa to bring about the ecological conversion called for in the papal encyclical Laudato Si’. While on immersion in Uganda, students will meet with diverse groups, including church-based ministries. The twofold course objective is to surface what meanings of the common good underlie these efforts among women and the Church in Africa, and to formulate personal, disciplinary, and structural responses to ecological crises, including their manifestation in forms of poverty as traditionally understood. This course requires travel to Uganda over the fall break 2017. 

The application for fall 2017 is now closed.
