Join us from September to December 2015 for Care for Creation: Scripture, Science, and Ethics team-taught by CTU Professor Dawn Nothwehr, OSF, and DePaul University Associate Professor Mark J. Potosnak. The course will provide the foundations for Catholic Social Teaching on environmental issues, such as ethical sources and norms, doctinal warrants, biblical themes, and science for environmental literacy. We will also feature speakers, projects, and materials developed by environmental justice ministries of CTU’s many religious communities.
Students interested in taking the course for credit should register for E4400/E5400 Care for the Earth: Ethics and Environment.
