Catholic Social Teaching & Pedagogy Conference
Catholic Social Teaching is the tradition of thought in which the Church seeks to advance justice in the world by engaging social, cultural, political and economic realities in our day. Thus, CST is both fitting and essential to the mission of Catholic higher education, particularly in the education and formation of its students.
To that end, CST can be a powerful tool in preparing students for the ethical and moral dimensions of professional practice and good citizenship. Many Catholic institutions of higher education strive to incorporate CST across the curriculum. While this can be a challenging responsibility, it can be done in a manner consistent with the educational and accreditation standards of each academic discipline.
The Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities and the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies (IPR) at the Catholic University of America (CUA) invite faculty from all disciplines to attend our conference this fall, and share learning modules on how to integrate Catholic Social Teaching in their classrooms.
