Glocalization Example

SCU Delegation is linked to Silicon Valley Interfaith Group pursuing “partner city” affiliation with WPR.

http://www.carrythevision.org/Site/default.htm

What is value-added of interfaith to religion’s participation in civic life of a region?

Will participation in PWR—the network and the 2009 Conference—affect interfaith networks here in Silicon Valley?

Does the Valley have a global religious landscape that parallels its global economy?

SCU learning outcomes

“to educate the whole person of solidarity in the real world”

(former) Superior General of Jesuits, Hans Peter Kolvenbach, S.J., who introduced this phrase at SCU in 2000 http://www.scu.edu/strategicplan/plan2001/integrated.cfm

“Jesuit universities should promote religious diversity and dialogue in an authentically religious way.”

Frank Clooney, S.J., “Goddess in the Classroom: Is the Promotion of Religious Diversity a Dangerous Idea?” http://groups.creighton.edu/sjdialogue/documents/articles/goddess_in_classroom.html
