Mission Day 2017 Lecture: Diversity, the Common Good, and Catholic Social Teaching

Steve Privett, S.J., currently serves as Chancellor of the University of San Francisco and as the California Jesuit Provincial's Assistant for Higher Education and Social Ministries. Fr. Privett previously served as President of the University of San Francisco and has been in the forefront of the leadership initiative that seeks to embed the service of faith and promotion of justice in the academic and co-curricular life of Jesuit universities. He sees a commitment to diversity in its many forms as part of the faith/justice mandate and as intimately linked with Catholic social teaching. Fr. Privett is a native Angeleno and a graduate of Loyola High School. He received his M.Div. degree from the Jesuit School of Theology (Berkeley) and his Ph.D. in catechetics from the Catholic University of America.

The theme of Fr. Privett's Mission-Day lecture nicely complements LMU's current focus on understanding implicit bias and how to mitigate its harmful effects in every-day life and decision-making. View the video below.
