2017 Hesburgh Alumni Lecture
David E. Campbell, Ph. D.
Tuesday, April 18
University’s Office of the Chaplains, in partnership with the Notre Dame Club
of the Western Carolinas and the university’s Catholic Campus Ministry, is
pleased to host the 2017 Hesburgh Alumni Lecture on Tuesday, April 18, at 7:00
p.m. in the Daniel Memorial Chapel at Furman University.
Our guest lecturer is David Campbell whose presentation is entitled “Does Religion Do More to Divide or Unite Americans?"
The United States is unusual in combining a high level of religious devotion, religious diversity, and religious tolerance - a combination that might lead to conflict. While religion is a fault line in national politics, at a personal level most Americans have built bridges across religious lines.
Dr. Campbell has written extensively on religious and civic engagement in American, including the award-winning book American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us.
A reception hosted by the Catholic Campus Ministry follows the lecture in the Bryan Garden Room.
