A new center at the University of Notre Dame seeks to bring Catholic social teaching into current-day political and constitutional debates.
In May, the university announced it was launching the Center for Citizenship and Constitutional Government, to feature discussions and scholarship on constitutionalism, Catholicism, and the common good.
“Our hope is to bring Washington to campus – by hosting politicians, policy makers, and leading public intellectuals to Notre Dame – and to bring Notre Dame to Washington – by hosting conversations and events featuring ND faculty in the nation’s capital,” said Dr. Vincent Phillip Muñoz, director of the center, told CNA in a statement on Friday.
Muñoz is also associate professor of political science and concurrent associate professor of law at the university.
