2008 Faculty Retreat


IFL once again hosted Vocation, Liberal Learning, and the Professions, the annual retreat for Baylor's new faculty at Laity Lodge, May 19-23. Thirty-six faculty members from across the disciplines gathered to reflect upon the theological significance of vocation and their common calling as teachers and scholars at Baylor. Financial support for the retreat was provided by the Lilly Endowment, Inc. and the H. E. Butt Foundation.

The retreat was led by four invited guests: David Jeffery, Distinguished Professor of Literature and Humanities at Baylor; Elizabeth Newman, professor of theology and ethics at the Baptist Theological Seminary in Richmond; John P. O'Callaghan, associate professor of philosophy and director of the Jacques Maritain Center at the University of Notre Dame; and Michael Sciretti, doctoral candidate in religion at Baylor.
