This looks like a wonderful creative initiative: Substantially Catholic
It is a summer program for faculty at Catholic or non-Catholic universities and colleges that exposes them to the Catholic intellectual tradition in their field. From their website:
SUBSTANTIALLY CATHOLIC seminars take a thematic approach in considering the Catholic intellectual contribution in particular academic disciplines.
English literature and philosophy/psychology are the featured disciplines for the 2009 SUBSTANTIALLY CATHOLIC seminar.
Participation is open to all faculty members seeking to enhance their knowledge of Catholic content and approaches in any of these fields. The numbers of participants in each of the disciplinary tracks will be limited in size to assure that presenters are accessible to the participants.
The SUBSTANTIALLY CATHOLIC seminar has a distinctive and decidedly practical goal – to help faculty members integrate the Catholic material presented at the seminar into their teaching repertoire in the immediately following academic year.
