Learning Objectives:

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Examine the historical origins and practices of the “Preferential Option of the Poor” from the Christian tradition—particularly the Lasallian approach.
  • Articulate the “logic” of Catholic Social Teaching and how it relates to a personal and communal ethic.
  • Deeply examine the three “selves” of reflection, evaluation, and disclosure—particularly around self- identified values and ethics as they apply to theological/philosophical categories.
  • Capacity to identify how the human experience of faith influences service and creates dialogue around questions of meaning and purpose.
  • Integrate social justice theory with a personal, communal, and global ethic based on sustainable practices with direct application for service and community engagement.
