Mercy integration grant recipients to present their papers
Salve Regina’s mercy integration grant recipients will share their work during “Mercy and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition,” a symposium scheduled for 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 25 in the DiStefano Lecture Hall.
Last year, the Office of Mission Integration invited faculty, staff and students to submit abstracts reflecting on how mercy and the Catholic intellectual tradition are interrelated. Each winning entry will receive a $500 grant.
Grant recipients who will present their papers during the symposium include:
- Arlene Nicholas, associate professor and graduate program director in the Department of Business Studies and Economics, will present “Mercy and Business: A Partnership for Catholic University Business Students.”
- Sean O’Callaghan, assistant professor in the Department of Religious and Theological Studies, and Sinan Zeino ’16 will present “The Role Which Mercy in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition Can Have in Building Interreligious Dialogue With Islam.”
- Joel Schmidt, assistant professor in the Department of Religious and Theological Studies, will present “The Mercy Vector: Contagious Transformation in Catholic Higher Education.”
