UIC Society on Science and Spirituality
University of Illinois at Chicago
With a planning committee consisting of members of the student body, diverse faculty members of humanities, medicine and sciences at UIC, and a member of the Parliament of Worldâ€™s Religions, this society supports a multitude of activities. Events are open to the public and well publicized within the larger community. Monthly meetings incorporate talks and invited speakers with discussion and exploration of the many sides and significant issues present in science-theology discourse. With the addition and exchange of faculty members, and students drawn from humanities and sciences, a bolstering of coordinated, interdisciplinary offerings will be added to the academic landscape of UIC. Additionally, an annual conference, to address important, emerging topics in the science-theology dialogue serves as a major catalyst for continued outreach. Matching funds are provided through a grant form the Institute for the Humanities, the Office of the Provost, the Dean of LAS, the Student Activities Fund, and the Beuttler ICR Account of UIC and the Illinois State Institute for the Humanities.
