Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
The Benedictine University Library invites students, faculty, and staff from the BenU Lisle campus to our Book Club discussion of Death Comes to the Archbishop by Willa Cather. The discussion will be held on Wednesday February 27th from Noon to 1pm in Kindlon room 311. There are copies available for checkout at the Library Research Center on the 3rd floor of Kindlon.
We are pleased to have Dr. Christine Fletcher as a featured speaker. Please join us as we explore this classic piece of literature by Willa Cather. The setting is the newly annexed territory of New Mexico in 1851. We follow a Bishop Latour who travels the area to reawaken its slumbering Catholicism.
