Father James P. Burns, IVD, Ph.D., hosted the spring President’s Roundtable event this morning, March 16. The virtual event featured engaging dialogue on the integration of character and virtue in business. At these events, Winona-area business, education, and government leaders gather together (now virtually) to network and to hear updates on new and innovative initiatives happening at Saint Mary’s University.

Saint Mary’s strategic plan, “Building a Future Full of Hope 2025,” calls for a renewed focus on character and virtue education. Michelle Wieser, Ph.D., dean of the School of Business and Technology, and Michael Hahn, Ph.D., program director of Character and Virtue Education, led a panel discussion on how character and virtue education is being implemented throughout campus life, academic curriculum, and in the School of Business. They also facilitated small group engagements where attendees had the opportunity to share their professional experiences on this important subject.
