WHAT: Symposium: How Working
Professionals Can Further the Common Good
WHEN: 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Friday, March
WHERE: The Catholic
University of America
Columbus School of Law
3600 John McCormack Road, N.E.
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.
