The McDevitt Center for Creativity and Innovation
Science and Religion in Modern America
The McDevitt Center for Creativity and Innovation at Le Moyne College announces the continuation of its major, two-year initiative devoted to “Science and Religion in Modern America.” The initiative brings eminent scholars from the sciences and the humanities to Le Moyne to present their most recent reflections on central aspects of the dynamic relationship between science and religion. Embodying Le Moyne’s Catholic and Jesuit commitment to seek the unity of all knowledge, “Science and Religion in Modern America” represents a compelling model for informed and respectful conversation about these critically important issues.
