Sacred Heart University has awarded tenure and promotions to eight faculty members. Additionally, ten other professors earned separate promotions.
Sacred Heart University's lecture series, Heart Challenges Hate, came to a close at the end of April after four complex and eye-opening discussions. The last lecture on religion was especially timely, as it occurred just three days after the Easter Sunday tragedy in Sri Lanka. In January, the University decided to respond to the troubling prevalence of violence in the world with a discussion series that examined the roots and resolutions of hate. Students, faculty and staff gathered for talks on the psychology and rhetoric of hate and hate in the context of the First Amendment and religion.
