Founder’s Day at Cabrini honors the birthday of the College’s founder, Sister Ursula Infante, MSC (1897‑2001).
Cabrini marks Founder’s Day with a presentation by a scholar or activist, someone who embodies the Cabrinian legacy of making God’s visible through active social‑justice work.
On Feb. 16, 2015, Cabrini welcomed Professor Richard Miller, Ph.D., of the Department of Theology at Creighton University to speak about “The Unfolding Climate Change Tragedy and the Mission of Catholic Universities.”
This talk treated four questions:
That evening, a panel discussion followed the screening of a film: “Food, Faith, and Climate: Connecting the Dots.”
Professor Cathy Yungmann, Tom O’Donnell, Ph.D., Richard Miller, Ph.D., and students from Cabrini debuted the film and led a community discussion.
This annual event is sponsored by Wolfington Center, Cabrini’s home for Catholic social teaching and community-based learning.
