Dean Tuchman delivers the Cardinal Bernardin Lecture at Georgetown University

This Spring, Dean Tuchman delivered the Cardinal Bernardin Lecture at Georgetown University. Dean Tuchman spoke on Pope Francis's Laudato Si' and how this encyclical was a call for courageous leadership and climate action. Her lecture delved into the unique role of Jesuit Universities as climate activists and climate leaders and what Loyola is doing to lead the way.

The Bernardin Lecture is an annual event sponsored by The Francis Project at Georgetown University. Each year The Francis Project invites the Georgetown community, as well as all their friends working on human dignity and life issues, to join them in welcoming a prominent leader in this field. This lecture always provides a unique opportunity to engage in dialogue with individuals who, like Cardinal Bernardin, have dedicated their lives to learning from and walking with those experiencing poverty, vulnerability, and marginalization.
