Duquesne University Community to Celebrate Founders Week 2014
Founders Week 2014, the annual celebration to honor the legacy, vision and values of Duquesne's Spiritan founders, will be celebrated on campus from Sunday, Feb. 2, through Friday, Feb. 7.
The theme for this year's Founders Week, One Heart, One Spirit: Living the Mission, will highlight a series of events focused around Spiritan education, the University's mission and how the University community lives that mission each day, through missionary work in the Dominican Republic, embodying the mission in teaching, living the mission from a commuter perspective, and Greek life and living the mission.
