Critical Concerns Week reflects the slate of issues addressed by the Sisters of Mercy, GCU’s sponsoring organization. Each year since 2006, the McAuley Community Center at GCU has dedicated a week of scholarly study to special concerns, including women’s issues, the environment, immigration and identity, and nonviolence. Since Georgian Court University unwrapped its dynamic Critical Concerns Week in the fall of 2006, the focus annually has been on in-depth, scholarly study of one issue at a time.
This year’s theme is Immigration. Believing firmly in the dignity of every person, we work for just and humane immigration laws in the U.S., address policies that push people to flee their countries, and examine the global impact of immigration. A number of events are slated from November 5 through November 8.
All events during Critical Concerns Week are free and open to the public. Please reserve your seating so that we can plan for your participation. For more information, contact Jennifer DePietro in the Office of Mission Integration at 732-987-2303.
