Benedictine Engagement with the World: Stability, Mission, and Outreach

Conference Purpose

Saint Anselm College, the host institution for this year’s annual Benedictine Pedagogy Conference (BPC), announces a call for papers on Benedictine Engagement with the World:  Stability, Mission, and Outreach. The BPC provides a venue for faculty, staff and administrators to share ideas and practices through which, in the classroom, student life, and collegiate environment, they have successfully integrated the hallmarks from the document Education in the Benedictine Tradition created by the Association of Benedictine Colleges and Universities (ABCU).

The Benedictine Pedagogy Conference this year will meet jointly with the ABCU meetings. The BPC will hold its own panels, while the ABCU will host its Benedictine Leadership Formation Institute as well as its annual meetings for monastic superiors and college presidents. All participants will be invited to joint sessions with keynote and guest speakers as well as social and liturgical events over the several days of the meetings.
