As part of the Creating More Campaign, The Leslie & Irene Dubé Chair for Catholic Studies was established in fall 2012 by St. Thomas More college, to serve as intellectual leadership for STM and the broader Catholic community. The Chair, made possible by Leslie and Irene Dubé $1 million endowment to the College, will support scholarship and research related to Catholic teaching and tradition, foster Catholic education and promote ecumenical dialogue and awareness of other faith traditions.

During the 2013-2014 academic year the Leslie & Irene Dubé Chair for Catholic Studies will continue to foster St. Thomas More's Catholic Identity & Mission by sponsoring events that explore:

Faith and the Intellectual Life
Ecumenical and Interfaith Dialogue
Ethical Issues in Today's World

We welcome you to participate in these wonderful opportunities bringing Catholic tradition into dialogue with contemporary culture.

The Chair will reinvigorate the curriculum used to prepare teachers in the province's Catholic school system. For over 15 years, the College has offered programming intended to help teachers incorporate faith into their classrooms. Working with STM colleagues and provincial contacts, the Chair will be responsible for enhancing this program and working with educators to encourage lifelong learning in the Catholic tradition.

The Chair will encourage dialogue about faith both on and off campus through public lectures, workshops and seminars that explore Catholic teaching and tradition, and promote ecumenical and inter-faith dialogue. In addition, the Chair will be an accessible resource for the entire Catholic community, offering expertise and educational opportunities for those involved in Catholic health agencies, social agencies, lay pastoral associates and other parish and diocesan staff.

St. Thomas More College is a Canadian leader in Catholic post-secondary education, inspiring students to appreciate the relationship between their academic and career pursuits and their faith. The Creating More Campaign will continue this crucial work.
