Center for Christianity and the Common Good

The Center for Christianity and the Common Good

Mission Statement

Founded in January 1990, the Center for Christianity and the Common Good provides a forum for serious and informed discussion of the common good and brings to bear upon this discussion the insight and wisdom of the Christian intellectual tradition. This goal is met particularly through attention to issues of current public significance. These issues may be political, economic, cultural, or theological, so long as they involve our common good as members of communities ranging from the university to the nation, the world, and the universal church. Sound communities are formed through the development of shared purposes enhancing the life of their members. The discussions of the Center are designed to help find and secure these shared purposes. The Center also provides an opportunity for students to have a foretaste of the contributions they will make as leaders of their communities, as well as practice in basing their own actions and judgments upon sound first principles.
