Multifaith Integral Human Development Colloquium Meeting


Location: Ansari Institute Lounge, 4148 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

Lake Snow Scenic

The Multifaith Integral Human Development Colloquium will welcome guest speaker Ashlee Bird, a Native American game designer and Moreau Postdoctoral Fellow with the University's Department of American Studies, at its next meeting on Friday, Feb. 25. All are welcome to attend. 

About the Colloquium

The colloquium aims to explore how various religious and spiritual traditions would approach the concepts and values of integral human development (IHD). Though IHD originated in Catholic social teaching, its framing is universal and its proponents believe that it can be applied to any context. 

In an effort to explore these possibilities, the colloquium will bring in special guests who do not come from a Catholic worldview to discuss how their belief systems inform humanitarian, peacebuilding, and development theory and practice. 

The goal of the colloquium is for participants to draw connections and expand IHD beyond its Catholic roots to become a truly global framework.
