The Civically Engaged Citizen – 2

Lourdes University Lifelong Learning presents The Civically Engaged Citizen – 2 with Hugh Grefe
1:30 – 3:30 pm, Tuesday
February 2 – 23 (4 weeks)
This class gets its title from a book focused on the idea of community. What does it mean to be engaged in our community? Giving or serving, leading or associating? How do we encourage people to engage together on community matters? What can we learn by reflecting on the writings of commentators, poets, business leaders, and artists? This is your invitation to join the discussion addressing thought provoking questions. This class began in the fall semester, but you are welcome whether or not you participated last semester.
The Civically Engaged Reader is a collection of more than forty provocative and diverse readings that range across literature, philosophy, and religion. These selections invite reflection on all kinds of civic-minded activities from authors ranging from Aristotle to Maya Angelou and Benjamin Franklin to Andrew Carnegie. Over four semesters, we will read different sections of this book. Published by the Great Books Foundation, the book is available for purchase through the Lifelong Learning office for $25.
Cost: $56 for Lifelong Learning members; $66 non-members
