This site supports Wabash Center faculty seminars that focus on the religious content of our IDS courses: the Rule of Benedict, human dignity and the common good in Catholic Social Teaching.
Interdisciplinary Seminars (IDS) are courses that integrate and synthesize multiple perspectives on complex issues such as environmental change, health care or global cities. IDS courses aim to help every student begin to apply and appreciate holistic thinking.
The IDS 200-level classes focus on the Benedictine and Catholic Intellectual Heritage; the IDS 300-level classes focus on the Person and the Common Good.
Many of the seminars will also meet other requirements such as the Global, Sustainable or Writing Intensive designations, and/or the Learning Community and Engaged Learning requirements.
