In 2022, the ACTC Undergraduate Conference will be sponsored by St. Vincent College and held on their beautiful campus in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. St. Vincent College was founded in 1846 as the first Benedictine college in the United States. 

 

According to their mission statement, “Saint Vincent College is an educational community rooted in the tradition of the Catholic faith, the heritage of Benedictine monasticism and the love of values inherent in the liberal approach to life and learning. Its mission is to provide quality undergraduate and graduate education for men and women to enable them to integrate their professional aims with the broader purposes of human life. The programs, activities and encounters that make up student life at Saint Vincent College encourage the intellectual gifts, professional aptitudes and personal aspirations of students to mature harmoniously.”

 

In addition to the conversations about core texts and education that we foster through our formal sessions, undergraduate students who attend the 2022 conference will have an opportunity to visit the Benedictine Abbey, enjoy cultural events on campus, explore the natural beauty of the Alleghenies. 

 

Our plenary speaker will be Zena Hitz, tutor at St. John’s College Annapolis and author of Lost in Thought: The Hidden Pleasures of an Intellectual Life

 

Our host at St. Vincent is Professor Michael Krom of the department of Philosophy.
