Georgetown University Professor of Theology John W. O’Malley, S.J. will present “The Humanistic Tradition of Education: What’s the Point?” on Mar. 18 at 4:30 p.m in the Murray Room of Yawkey Center. Drawing on the origins and ethos out of which the Jesuit commitment to education grew, Fr. O’Malley will describe the fundamental options that orient Jesuit education and that animate a flexible and adaptable approach to education in the circumstances of the contemporary university. The event is being held as part of the Arts & Sciences Dean’s Colloquium. Fr. O’Malley is the author of many books, including The First Jesuits, Four Cultures of the West, What Happened at Vatican II, Trent: What Happened at the Council, and A History of the Popes, among others.
