Additionally, this year the Martin Institute will host its second Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow.
Later this semester, Harold Piper will share his experience as an international journalist and Baltimore Sun foreign correspondent, reporting on world events such as summit meetings, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982.
To further support the goals of the College, the Martin Institute has also created interdisciplinary concentrations, which allow students to explore topics at the intersection of two or more subject areas.
An Education/English major, Tara Lonergan '09 is our first Catholic Studies Scholar and is working with Rev. George Piggford, C.S.C., Martin Fellow in Catholic Studies, on this area of concentration.
While the Martin Institute's mission and philosophy have been strengthened, the physical environment has also undergone change.
To make the building more inviting to students and visitors, office doors are kept open more often, photos of keynote speakers are displayed on the walls, a renovated faculty lounge now serves as a public café, and the St. Francis of Assisi room welcomes meditation and reflection.
