McFarland Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture

The Rev. Michael C. McFarland, S.J. Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture sponsors and supports programming that explores basic human questions of meaning, morality, and mutual obligation. 

Following the principle that faith and learning are partners in liberal education, the McFarland Center's programs foster dialogue that respects differences and provide a forum for intellectual exchange that is interreligious as well as interdisciplinary, intercultural, and international in scope.

Most of the McFarland Center's programs are video or audio recorded and made available online within a few days. Browse our catalog of recordings under "Listen and Learn" and check out our new site on iTunes U, featuring themed collections of our most popular talks.
