Description

Theology Night Live is a series of presentations and discussions on timely theological topics. This TNL will be offered by Dr. Ry Siggelkow and his students in the Common Good Scholars Program. The Common Good Scholars Program (CGSP) is uniquely designed for students seeking to connect faith and scholarship with action for social justice and the common good. Through a guided sequence of courses taken as a cohort over two years, students will study liberation theology, Christian ethics, and Catholic social thought. In addition, they will have the opportunity to study abroad.

The CGSP aims to provide a space for students to engage in deep conversation about contemporary social issues within the context of community. Drawing from theological traditions that have emerged out of historical struggles for freedom, CGSP courses focus on Black & womanist theology, Latin American theology, minjung theology, along with many other critical traditions.

Students enrolled in the Emerging Scholars Living Learning Community (LLC) may apply to join the CGSP during their first semester. Many students will already be completing the first course (THEO 100: Foundations) with faculty associated with the LLC. Students not enrolled in the Emerging Scholars LLC are also invited to join the CGSP. Entering the program in the second semester of their first year, a cohort of students will participate in the sequence of courses both on campus and abroad. In addition, the Scholars have access to a designated study space in JRC 142.
