Celebrating Scholarly Achievement

2009 Jesuit Stipends

Two stipends are offered annually by the Jesuit community to encourage and support faculty in developing new courses, or substantially modifying current courses, to advance the Catholic Mission of UDM. Previously funded by the Jesuit 100 Association, these stipends are now funded solely by the Jesuit Community at UDM to promote the Catholic identity and spiritual values of the university as it prepares the future leaders of our community and the world.

Information provided as summary statements comes directly from the faculty's proposals.

Currently displaying all Jesuit Stipends. Limit the items displayed to:

Leever, Martin (2009)

Martin Leever's new course "The Catholic Moral Tradition: Classical & Contemporary Natural Law – PHL 495" will help students gain a facility with the fundamental concepts and an appreciation for the philosophical rigor that underlies the views of the theory of natural law. The course will focus on the influence of moral theology and on contemporary controversies and papal responses. Dr. Leever is an associate professor of Philosophy and chair of the Department of Philosophy.

Venugopal, Prasad (2009)

Prasad Venugopal's intent is to develop an interdisciplinary course "Science, Technology & Race" to serve as an introduction to the myriad ways in which science, technology, and race influence and are influenced by each other. Course will focus on science and the origins of scientific racism, technological constructions of race, racial politics in science and technology, and race, science and technology in global contexts. Dr. Venugopal is an associate professor of Physics.
