Celebrating Scholarly Achievement

2007 Jesuit Stipends

Two stipends are offered annually by the Jesuit community to encourage and support faculty in developing new courses, or substantially modifying current courses, to advance the Catholic Mission of UDM. Previously funded by the Jesuit 100 Association, these stipends are now funded solely by the Jesuit Community at UDM to promote the Catholic identity and spiritual values of the university as it prepares the future leaders of our community and the world.

Information provided as summary statements comes directly from the faculty's proposals.

Currently displaying all Jesuit Stipends. Limit the items displayed to:

Koelsch, David (2007)

David Koelsch's proposal for "There is a Balm in Gilead: Using Spiritual Values to Serve Lawyers and their Clients" will concentrate on attorneys work with immigration clients who are often in great physical and spiritual need. The course will train law students to approach their clients from a holistic and Jesuit perspective, will expose students to the teachings and principles of major world religions in order to respectfully engage clients regarding their spirituality, help students to use their spirituality as a means of healing themselves, and serve as a model for instilling spiritual values into other law school courses. Professor Koelsch is the Director of the School of Law Immigration Law Clinic

Tracy-Bee, Mary (2007)

Mary Tracy-Bee intends to focus on increasing a Catholic identity in her anatomy courses by helping students cope with the dissection experience, incorporating a service-learning component, and offering tutorials and other learning devices to aid student's learning of this complex material. The course will offer sources of information, comfort, or explanation of the cadaver experience by providing written and on-line information and reflection on this topic. The course will involve sharing of Catholic topics, such as faith, ethics, and spirituality. Dr. Tracy-Bee is an associate professor in the Department of Biology.
