The Seventh Annual Presidential Conference on the Integrity of Creation
The seventh Annual Presidential Conference on the Integrity of Creation focuses on the topic of Climate Resiliency: Collaboration, Adaptation, and Action, to discuss pivotal issues regarding safeguarding our planet. The interdisciplinary conference invites participants from different disciplines to engage each other in civil discourse on a different topic each year. The format of the conference includes Workshops, Presentations, and Posters (see the Conference Schedule when posted).
The conference series was commissioned by former President Charles J. Dougherty as an endowed academic event that celebrates the Spiritan mission of Duquesne University. The 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:
1. To provide a scholarly opportunity to engage established and emerging research on the conference topic
2. To foster interdisciplinary discourse on each topic, such as among science, health, philosophy, religion, and policy
3. To enlighten public awareness and discussion of the conference topic
