Terrence J. Murphy Institute for Catholic Thought, Law, and Public Policy
A venture of the Center for Catholic Studies and the School of Law, the Murphy Institute works to engage both the public and academic community in rigorous discussions that bring historical and contemporary Catholic perspectives to bear on debates in law and public policy. From Augustine and Aquinas to Galileo and Thomas More, on to Montesquieu, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis, the vibrant programs of the Murphy Institute plumb the interdisciplinary riches of the Catholic intellectual tradition and draw upon other academic disciplines and faith traditions to:
- Facilitate scholarship and scholarly discussions
- Engage and serve the church and community through public events
- Support the development of curricular resources that integrate the Catholic intellectual tradition in the classroom
- Provide nonpartisan public policy analysis
5:45 PM - 8:30 PM Friday, April 7; Reception 5:45 p.m., Program 6:45 p.m.
All are welcome to this special evening with New York Times op-ed columnist, Ross Douthat, and professor and political commentator, Dr. Cornel West.
