Theological Educationalists – That’s the role of the Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs team at Seattle University. The Center pursues scholarly and community projects with a commitment to the educationally formative role of theology within university life. With an Ignatian sensibility, the Center promotes the insights of every discipline, so that Center projects are steeped in the wisdom of life, from students, alumni staff, faculty, and friends all around Seattle University.
A Sounding is a gathering (webinar or in-person) where we emphasize Ignatian discernment to critical issues impacting our lives. Through discernment, we agree upon transformative action and seek specific means of being catalysts for change.
The Greening of Wisdom:
Theological discernment in the Ignatian tradition at Seattle University believes that wisdom from every field is a renewable resource for the public. When we value and share wisdom then we promote the vitality of the whole ecology of communal well-being. The Seeking Wisdom Series promotes the greening of wisdom by providing expertise across the university and community, with an emphasis upon the wisdom of faculty at Seattle University.
A collection of podcasts, videos, and interviews with key faculty and staff, focusing on the value of wisdom in a University setting.
From 2016-2019 The Center convened scholars, practitioners, and those who have experienced homelessness and shelterlessness, in order to provide background and insights on the complexities of these challenges.
This Homelessness Resource invites you, the viewer and listener, into these important conversations for educating both oneself and the community.
