Celebrating Scholarly Achievement

2010 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:

Hu, Hsiao-Lan (2010)

Hsiao-Lan Hu's proposal for a new course "Religions and Global Wellbeing," will focus on drawing from the rich resources of world religions and spiritualties to think through social issues and work for global justice. The course will introduce students to the comparative study of religious social ethics and prompt students to view themselves as citizens of the global village who have global responsibilities. Dr. Hu is an associate professor of Religious Studies and Women and Gender Studies.

Schumack, Mark, Alexa Rihana-Abdallah, and Prasad Venugopal (2010)

Professors Mark Schumack, Alexa Rihana-Abdallah, and Prasad Venugopal will develop a core curriculum course "Energy and Society" for nontechnical majors. The course will seek to inform students about the critical issues surrounding energy, including production and consumption patterns, various technologies and their environmental consequences, and the pros and cons of renewable and nonrenewable energy sources. Students will be provided with a straightforward yet sophisticated appreciation of the negative effects of unconsidered energy consumption. Mark Schumack is a professor of Mechanical Engineering, Prasad Venugopal an associate professor of Physics, and Alexa Rihana an associate professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering.
