March 26-27, 2024 

Duquesne University | Power Center

This ninth conference focused on the topic of Pathways to Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, recognizing the challenging deadline of 2030 to meet the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. The interdisciplinary conference invites participants from different disciplines to engage in civil discourse on a different topic each year. The format of the conference includes workshops, presentations, and posters.

The conference series was commissioned by former President Charles J. Dougherty as an endowed academic event. Current University President, Ken Gormley, continues to inspire excellence in support of the Spiritan mission as the conference series develops. 

The conference has three goals:

  • Provide a scholarly opportunity to engage established and emerging research on the conference topic
  • Foster interdisciplinary discourse on each topic, such as science, health, philosophy, religion, and policy
  • Enlighten public awareness and discussion of the conference topic
