Duquesne University Hosting Climate Change Conference Sept. 30-Oct. 2

Climate change will be the topic of this year’s Duquesne University Presidential Conference to be held September 30 to October 2 in Pittsburgh.
This interdisciplinary, academic conference will occur each year to provide a scholarly forum for exploring a topic related to the general theme of the Integrity of Creation.
The conference, commissioned by Duquesne President Dr. Charles J. Dougherty, is an endowed academic event that celebrates the Spiritan mission of Duquesne University. The conference is interdisciplinary in the sense that presenters and participants from different disciplines are invited to engage each other in civil discourse on the conference topic.
Climate change will be discussed as a substantive and worrying change of patterns in the weather and related phenomena over recent decades which negatively impact the entire planet. This academic conference explores the implications of climate change from a variety of scholarly perspectives to consider ways to improve our planet's future - safeguarding the Integrity of Creation around us.
The conference has three goals:
— To provide a scholarly opportunity to engage established and emerging research on the conference topic
— To foster interdisciplinary discourse on each topic, such as among science, health, philosophy, religion and policy
— To enlighten public awareness and discussion of the conference topic.
