The Unity of Truth: How a Dominican Center of Distinction Fosters Integration and Transformation
Noonan, Claire
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v30 n2 p255-268 Sum 2011
In 2003, Dominican University launched a new venture with an explicitly ecclesial purpose, aimed not strictly at the education of its own students but also toward the continuing education of its neighboring community. The mission of the St. Catherine of Siena Center is to engage faith and scholarship with the critical issues of church and society for the benefit of the university community, professional ministers, and the wider community of faith. Through a review of three of the Siena Center's programming series, this article will explore the Center's unique voice in the university and the local Church. Assessing its impact on both constituencies reveals two ways the Center contributes to the deepening of Catholic identity: (1) new collaborative possibilities for research and curricular developments; and (2) the integration of prayer and study.
