WHAT:             Symposium: How Working Professionals Can Further the Common Good


WHEN:             9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Friday, March 11


WHERE:           The Catholic University of America

                        Columbus School of Law

                        3600 John McCormack Road, N.E.

                        Washington, D.C.


DETAILS:         The CUA symposium, “Professions and the Common Good,” will explore the application of Catholic social thought in the workplace at a time when, as some would argue, the corporate mindset seems to be eclipsing the need to further the common good of society. CUA faculty members from a variety of disciplines will explore how the common good is represented in the education of professionals, such as nurses, architects and engineers, and how Catholic social thought, which reflects concern for every human, informs that instruction.


At the symposium, faculty from the disciplines of law, nursing, social work, education, engineering, economics, philosophy and library science will participate in a series of four discussions. The symposium is the first step in developing a universal form of professionalism — one that is catholic as well as Catholic and capable of enhancing the common good in a global, pluralistic society.


The symposium is free and open to the public. For more information, call 202-319-6126.
