Dr. Susan Mountin addressed the Concordia faculty at this October 28 presentation. If you missed it, here is the archived recording.
This seminar explored how faith and reason come together in the life of the academic. In the contemporary world, challenges exist in higher education that tend to separate faith and reason. But the origins of higher education have always been focused on preparing people for ministry. During the session participants will:
• explore the relationship between faith and reason starting with a Catholic theological and philosophical lens and
• name the unique contributions of the Lutheran tradition to this conversation and
• reflect on their own vocation as educators in the Lutheran Christian tradition
Susan M. Mountin, Ph.D,. is Director of Manresa for Faculty at Marquette University. She spent 25 years as a Campus Minister from 1977-2001. In 2002 she became director of the Manresa Project (a $2.5 million Lilly Endowment grant funded program for the Theological Exploration of Vocation); since 2010 she has expanded the work of the grant with faculty through the Center for Teaching and Learning at Marquette providing workshops and programs related to Marquette’s religious heritage. She has been an adjunct faculty member since 1977 teaching journalism, education, and theology courses. Her starting career was as a Catholic newspaper and magazine journalist.
