Character Education and Virtue Formation Speaker Series

Join us for the Character Education and Virtue Formation Speaker Series presentations, scheduled throughout the 2019-2020 academic year.

A primary goal of our new strategic plan, “Building a Future Full of Hope,” is to live our Lasallian Catholic heritage. Within the School of Education, Saint Mary’s has a strong reputation for preparing our state’s educators and educational administrators, and ensuring that character and ethics are at the foundation of our educational system.

Past Speakers

James Arthur, Ph.D. & Kristján Kristjánsson, Ph.D.
