Join the Center for Catholic Studies, faculty and staff members for a series of conversations on engaging the St. Mary's University mission.

Engaging the Mission Conversations are monthly discussions hosted by the Center for Catholic Studies during which specific mission-related topics will be presented. Each session reflects upon a different characteristic of a Marianist university with faculty who engage the topic and have successfully connected it to pillars of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. 

All conversations will draw from the Characteristics of Marianist Universities booklet and The Catholic Intellectual Tradition: Core Principles for the College or University, as well as reflective questions associated with the readings. Reflection questions can be found at www.stmarytx.edu/engaging-the-mission.
