A course worth teaching: discussions with Yale’s Matthew Croasmun, May 3 

The Marquette community is invited to a conversation and workshop with Dr. Matthew Croasmun of Yale University on his award-winning book, “Life Worth Living,” on Friday, May 3, from 1:40 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the 707 Hub.

Croasmun is an associate research scholar and director of the Life Worth Living Program at the Yale Center for Faith and Culture, as well as a lecturer of divinity and humanities at Yale. Hear about the course that is changing undergraduate education at Yale and brainstorm with Croasmun about how the question “What is a life worth living?” might shape the Marquette Core Curriculum and beyond.
