Symposium held September 30, 2004, as part of the activities during the inaugural week for Rev. Gerard L. Stockhausen as President of the University of Detroit Mercy.

Moderator, Rev. Msgr. John Zenz ; principal speaker, Rev. Paul Locatelli ; University respondents, Sister Maureen A. Fay, Sr. Elizabeth Linehan.

"Explores the implications of the University of Detroit Mercy's commitment to an urban and regional moral ecology. Discusses how the traditions of the Sisters of Mercy (compassionate service to the poor in cities) and the Jesuits (promotion of social justice) shape the way UDM lives out its university mission of excellence in research and teaching in this time and urban location, and how these traditions can make a difference in a region with both a high-tech manufacturing and communication economy as well as concentrated poverty."
