Learn teaching methods that expand the dialogue between science and religion and challenge the notion that the two disciplines are in conflict. Science teachers will learn how theological insights can be used to inform topics in biology and physics. Likewise, religion teachers will explore how scientific findings can help inform and enhance their appreciation of God's creation.
The Science & Religion Initiative offers summer seminars at the University of Notre Dame campus and Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans. During the academic year, the initiative hosts Institute Days at Catholic high schools across the nation to provide excellent in-service programming for teachers and administrators.
In most cases, school participation is by application or invitation only.

There’s such a spirit of collaboration here that I think is so powerful. Both the materials and the structure of our days has just been above and beyond my expectations. I wish I could bring my entire faculty here
