19th Annotation Spiritual Exercises in Daily Life, 2015/2016

For a third consecutive year, the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola will be available on campus for faculty, staff and administrators. This Ignatian retreat, an eight- to nin-month adaptation of the full 30-day Spiritual Exercises retreat, is a journey with the Lord to help the retreatant grow in spiritual freedom and the ability to find intimacy with God in the midst of everyday life. Retreatants will engage in a daily period of meditative prayer and reflection, using the biblically based Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, and meet regularly with a director/guide who will accompany and guide the retreatant on his or her spiritual journey. Experienced Ignatian directors are drawn from campus Jesuits as well as lay women and men. The retreat will begin in early October and conclude in the latter part of May 2016. Information sessions will take place in the conference room at the Campus Minstry Office, Panasci Family Chapel on the following days and times: Thursday, Sept. 10, 12:30 p.m., and 4:30 p..m.., Monday, Sept. 14, 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 15, 12:30 p.m. and Wednesday, Sept 16, 4:30 p.m. More detailed information about the 19th Annotation Spiritual Exercises in Daily Life may be found by contacting Bill Dolan, S.J., at (315) 445-4112 or dolanws@lemoyne.edu or online at:

Faculty Invited to Apply for Sustainability Fellowships

Faculty from all disciplines at Le Moyne and Syracuse University are invited to apply for a new inter-institutional initiative: Fall 2015 Sustainability Faculty Fellowships. Each institution will award up to three Fellowships to promote learning, scholarship, and pedagogy related to the theme of climate change and social justice. The remarkable Papal Encyclical on climate change, “Laudato Si,” issued in June, is an invitation to dialogue not only about the scientific, technical, and economic dimensions of climate change but about its moral, ethical, and social dimensions as well. A similar range of issues informs the book, This Changes Everything, by journalist Naomi Klein (2014). During the fall semester, the Le Moyne and SU communities will host leading experts about the Papal encyclical and Naomi Klein herself, as well as the trailblazing climate scientist Michael Mann, author of The Hockey Stick and The Climate Wars (2012) The Faculty Sustainability Fellows program will draw on this confluence of opportunities to bring together faculty from both institutions to explore issues of climate justice and brainstorm about ways to extend this important dialogue into the classroom and student research. The SU Sustainability Faculty Fellows are supported by the office of the Vice President for Sustainability Initiatives. The Le Moyne Fellows are supported by the McDevitt Center. Fellows will receive stipends of $500, with the potential for modest additional funding to support collaborative initiatives. Fellows will be expected to attend three events, plus two additional meetings, and to submit a brief written report that relates the topics discussed to their respective disciplines and then lays out one or more specific ways they could be used to enhance the curriculum and opportunities for collaboration between SU and Le Moyne. This could include a lesson plan, a new course description, ideas for student research projects, study abroad, as well as local or more broadly-based engagement opportunities. Faculty who are not already experts on climate change or sustainability are particularly encouraged to apply. Information on the application process can be found at the link below. The deadline to apply is Sept. 1 and decisions will be announced no later than Sept. 7.
