TECHNOLOGY & THE HUMAN SPIRIT
A DAY-LONG SYMPOSIUM
FRIDAY | MAY 8, 2020 | SCU RECITAL HALL
Technology has changed us, and it will continue to shape our lives, our organizations, our communities, and our future. How can we steward technology’s advance to benefit humanity to the fullest — supporting human endeavour, contributing to human flourishing in all its dimensions?
Santa Clara University, which brings the inclusive perspective of Jesuit education to Silicon Valley, is pursuing answers. We invite you to join us for this one-day symposium as we explore the most profound and complex questions about technology and the human spirit, engaging diverse partners in conversation and action.
