    Sustaining Earth

    Chair: Father George Coyne (2015-present)

    Associate Chair: Don McCrimmon (2017-2018)

    Through the public events in this initiative, we aim to provide a wide audience of students, faculty and members of the regional community with accurate and up-to-date information about the threats, their causes and measures to meet these threats. We also seek to ground and frame these issues within the context of broadly religious perspectives on our human relation to the environment and our ethical obligations to care for it – all with the intention of helping to foster informed and concerted action to sustain the earth.

    Director: Steven Affeldt

    Your college career begins with a lot of questions: What are my talents?  What are my career goals? Who am I as a person?  Through the Manresa Program, students begin answering those questions as soon as they set foot on campus.  Never alone, they go on a journey of personal, professional and spiritual growth with a diverse set of faculty, staff, administrators and peers.  While all bring a different set of experiences and challenges, all help one another more fully answer the enduring life question: What is my role in this world, and how can I best fulfill it.

    Manresa is a part of everything that you’ll do at Le Moyne.  As a fellow, you’ll participate each year in seminars, giving you the opportunity to work with a mentor in small groups and uncover your passions, your personal traits, and career paths that best suit your unique gifts.  You are guaranteed an internship placement, career counseling, and thorough job interview practice.  You’ll also learn in specifically designated Core and interdisciplinary courses related to your progress in the program, participate in many co-curricular activities involving the community, join service-learning programs, and be invited to Manresa specific lectures and workshops throughout the year.

    To learn more about the Manresa Program contact Ronald “RJ” Rapoza in the Office of Career and Advising RH 342 or by phone 315-445-4185.
