Faith and Intellectual Life Discussion Group

Wine and books imageAll UP faculty and staff are welcome to participate in the Faith and Intellectual Life Discussion Group. We read and discuss ideas that matter in a friendly and stimulating gathering a couple of Friday afternoons each term, fortified by snacks and libations. Meetings are 3:30–5 p.m. in the Murphy Room, on the fourth floor of Franz Hall. Links to readings will be posted here well in advance of the discussion date.
