DeSales University is proud to offer a unique opportunity to our faculty – the Summer Institute of Catholic Social Thought (SICST). Below is a testimonial from Dr. Joshua Schulz, who attended the Summer Institute in June 2010:
“I attended the SICST last summer, and I wanted to pass on what a great experience it is. Fr. Sullins brought in a wide variety of experts on various aspects of Christian humanism and Catholic Social Teaching. We heard from social scientists, anthropologists, psychologists, historians, economists, lawyers, and even Fr. Groschel – just to name a few – over the course of the week. Most of the participants come from the social sciences (I was one of two philosophers/theologians there), and most participants are using the seminar as an introduction to CST. I would strongly recommend the Institute to anyone who has the time or inclination to go, and if anyone would like to talk about the Institute, I would be happy to discuss it with them.” — Joshua Schulz, philosophy
