Oklahoma City University: Peace, Poverty & Planet Earth
Share |
During the past several months you have probably heard about ICA-USA's increasing work with Oklahoma City University (OCU). Details are now in place for a major event this coming summer. ICA-USA is co-sponsoring a research conference with OCU and its Oikos Honors Program on July 12-14, 2010. This year’s event will be followed by three similar annual conferences during 2011-1013. The purpose is to develop curriculum, both for use in the classroom and beyond, to prepare university students, and others, to respond to the moral responsibilities and spiritual implications of twenty-first century global challenges. This has come about because of the university’s interest in 45 years of social engagement symbolized by the EI/OE/ICA Archives. This is an opportunity for ICA constituents (both old colleagues and new faces) to ensure that our institutional wisdom and experience is expanded upon and practically incorporated into new educational undertakings. There is a potential for ICA to be involved in virtual classroom courses, intern placement programs, and academic research based on the EI/OE/ICA Archives. This later point especially underscores the importance of the current work on the Archives taking place this month in Chicago.
