Summer 2018

Dear Friends,

​As we ease into the warm days of late spring and then summer we find ourselves filled with gratitude for the support you have given to us this past year. Our online and on campus activities brought more than 1,800 community and campus members together through our many educational and partnership programming. This year we offered 2 online courses for spiritual enrichment that reached across the globe. We also hosted many on campus events like Heritage Week, Forum for Ethics in the Workplace Reel to Real, The Hesburgh and Ruggiero lectures … just to name a few.

Here at the Salesian Center, as we close out another academic year we look ahead at planning events that will inspire and bring YOU to our lovely campus … in person or virtually!

As always, we thank you for your continued support of our work and invite you to keep up-to-date by following us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, or sign up for our E-newsletter.

​In the meantime, enjoy this glorious weather and God bless. ​

"A specific priority is the need to examine the predominant values and norms of modern society and culture in a Christian perspective, and the responsibility to try to communicate to society those ethical and religious principles which give full meaning to human life."
