Seton Hall and Catholic Studies Director to Lead IFCU Scholarly Working Group

January 2022

Led by Director of Catholic Studies Ines Murzaku, Ph.D., the group will bring together scholars from IFCU affiliated universities from around the world to collaboratively engage in ongoing "think-tank" style discussions on how to infuse the Catholic Intellectual Tradition into each university’s curriculum.

Educating on the integration of the Church’s dialogue with disciplines such as history, philosophy, diplomacy, the sciences and more is key component behind the curriculum of the interdisciplinary program in Catholic Studies – a critical reason around why the University was selected to guide this partnership among IFCU affiliated universities.

"The IFCU working group intends to build on Seton Hall’s strengths in study and practice – to open conversation on the theoretical and practical applications of studying faith and reason," commented Murzaku. "The group will benefit from dialogue and shared experiences of international scholars and educators. It is a unique initiative that will bring together a series of experts from different backgrounds around a much-awaited common cause, a crucial one for all Catholic universities. We are sure that the group’s work will inspire many Catholic institutions across the world."
