The Center for Spiritan Studies
The rich legacy of the Spiritan tradition lies at the very heart of Duquesne University and forms its guiding principles and practical ethos.
The Center for Spiritan Studies was founded in 2005 as a collaborative venture of Duquesne University and the Congregation of the Holy Spirit.
Its objective is to foster research on Spiritan history, tradition, and spirituality, as well as to disseminate the results throughout the Congregation, the University, and the general public.
The following programs, among others, serve the ends of the Center:
- Online resources in the Spiritan Collection, and library resources at the Ed Supple Room of the Gumberg Library.
- The journal, Spiritan Horizons, published annually.
- The Spiritan Studies Scholar-in-Residence program for professors and other academics who wish to research the Spiritan Tradition.
- A year in Spiritan Studies for Spiritan formators and others who wish to pursue Masters and/or doctoral studies at Duquesne.
- A UCOR course in Spiritan Studies.
- Resource on Spiritan tradition for faculty and staff seeking it for classes or service training.
