In conjunction with the Institute for Global Interdisciplinary Studies, Falvey Memorial Library co-sponsors a series of events called “Reading Villanova” in which several elite scholars discuss a topic across several disciplines.
The Institute for Global Interdisciplinary Studies is tasked with the primary purpose of providing students with a set of skills that will foster critical and analytical thinking and the problem solving tools that will prepare them to assume their roles as responsible global citizens. The major in global interdisciplinary studies is a reiteration of the Augustinian vision of an engaged community of learners within the global context. The purpose of the Institute centers on the service of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to the broader University community in the humanization, globalization, and integration of the disciplines and the professions.
The events are free and open to the public.
