University Chair in Critical Thinking

Hannah Arendt, The Life of the Mind
The Chair sponsors an annual lecture series, serves as the faculty advisor for students for nationally competitive fellowships, sponsors international faculty development seminars, and teaches in the CORE and Honors curriculum of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University.
