The Chair in Catholic Thought and Culture

The Endowed Chair in Catholic Thought will reinforce Rosemont College's commitment to its Catholic identity by supporting a professor whose scholarly work in Catholicism will focus on an interdisciplinary approach to theology, social justice, philosophy and ethics. In the spirit of John Paul II's Ex corde Ecclesiae, Rosemont College will give students "an opportunity to re-examine their origin and renew their way of living out this precious heritage."

The endowment will support the chair salary and the development and implementation of year-round campus activities focused on Catholicism and the Catholic intellectual tradition within the perspective of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus' philosophy.

"We vividly unfold in the course of our education, the beauty of the charity, truth and morality of the One, Apostolic, Holy Roman Catholic Church..."
