  • Laudato Si’ across the Curriculum

    This professional development program trains SCU faculty and their teaching assistants to design curricular projects involving community-engaged research for environmental justice. The program supports curricular design to help students understand, reflect, and act on the twin crises of social and environmental justice identified by Pope Francis in his encyclical Laudato Si’. We plan to extend this program to other Jesuit higher educational institutions.

    SCU Participants: Chad Raphael

    Funder: John Burns (SCU ‘66)
