Celebrating Scholarly Achievement

2012 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.

Freeman, John (2012)

Professor John Freeman's proposal "Employing Jesuit Pedagogy to Enrich Student Involvement in Social Media" will determine how to empower students to use the Ignatian method to be more critical of the role social media plays in their lives while also helping them explore ways in which their engagement with such media can become more profound and transformative. Dr. Freeman is a professor of English.

Nantis, David (2012)

Dave Nantais will develop a new course "Popular Music and Religion" that will investigate religious and spiritual themes in contemporary popular music styles, including rock, hip-hop, punk, emo, and R&B as well as offer students the tools with which to reflect theologically and spiritually on the music they enjoy. David Nantais is an Adjunct Instructor in Philosophy and Director of University Ministry.
