The Idea of Beauty Series: In Spring 2018, the Humanities Center will begin a major and ambitious exploration of the three underlying concepts that constituted the foundation of USD at its inception: beauty, goodness, and truth. In the words of Mother Rosalie Hill, "Beauty will attract them, goodness will lead them, but the truth will hold them." With a semester of programming dedicated to each of these fundamental ideas, we will begin a series of events and discussions investigating the idea of beauty. This will be approached from a number of perspectives and disciplines. As USD celebrates the Princeton Review award for the "Most Beautiful Campus" in the nation, this series is especially timely and inspiring.

Moderated by:

Noelle Norton, PhD | Dean, College of Arts and Sciences

Lori Watson, PhD | Professor and Chair, Philosophy

Erin Lovette-Colyer | Director, Women's Center
