Catholic Intellectual Tradition
Established in 2012, the Center for the Catholic Intellectual Tradition expands upon Duquesne’s long history of considering—and contributing to—the Catholic intellectual tradition in both the historical and the modern contexts. Its mission is to promote and advance the Catholic intellectual tradition across the entire spectrum of the University’s pursuits: research, teaching, faculty networking, and programs that apply Catholic ideas and ideals to a broad range of issues. As part of the Division of Mission and Identity and in concert with Duquesne’s Strategic Plan, the Center supports a community-wide emphasis on central Catholic and Spiritan values such as social justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.
