Inspired by the words and vision of Catherine McAuley, Roundtable participants presented papers and websites which explored the influence of the Mercy heritage on the teaching and culture at each of our institutions. These writings and photos are offered for further reflection and for the stimulation of a rich and vibrant relationship among all those who bring the Mercy heritage to life on our campuses.
The most recent Carlow Roundtable was held from May 26-June 1, 2013, in Mercy's Home (Mercy International), Dublin, and Glendalough County, Wicklow, Ireland. Representatives from Carlow University as well as other Mercy colleges from throughout the United States gathered in the home of Mercy family all over the world to present and participate in discussions centered on how the values of the Sisters of Mercy inform the work of our teaching and administration.
CMHE colleagues met in Carlow, Ireland, for the fifth Carlow University Round Table and participated in a dialog on teaching in Mercy mission-centered institutions and the role of Catholic Social Teaching. Although each Mercy institution has its own culture, every institution shares the same heritage; inspired by our common Mercy heritage. We will draw from our knowledge and experience to explore how our heritage and Catholic Social Teaching influences how and what we teach in these institutions of higher learning.
