Becoming “trauma-informed” means recognizing the many types of trauma people experience and its impact on their lives. Equipped with this knowledge, communities are better prepared to respond with compassion, support, and understanding. Utilizing an award winning documentary, a panel of community professionals, and speakers from the field, the Building a Trauma Informed Community Series explores adverse events that can lead to trauma, examines how individuals can develop resilience despite exposure to trauma, and introduces innovative programming for working with survivors.
Almost 80 years after the famous 1925 "Scopes Monkey Trial," the teaching of evolution was once again in the courtroom in Dover, Pennsylvania. What is it about the science of evolution that makes it so difficult for many Christians to come to terms with some of its consequences? This talk places this controversy within a U.S. context, but also shows that resources are available within the Christian tradition for a healthy dialogue between science and faith, even with some of the difficult problems raised by evolution.

On the 20th anniversary of his encyclical Fides et Ratio, we turn to St. John Paul II's conviction that Jesus Christ is not only the answer to who God is, but also to who we are to become. For, in becoming human, God has rendered all human desire and inquiries as channels of encountering the divine. As such, faith and reason, divinity and humanity, now form a harmonic symphony in which the human person can finally find the fullness of what it means to be truly alive, fulfilled, and flourishing.
Fr. David Vincent Meconi, S.J., D.Phil. (Oxon.)

Mount Mercy University recognizes that hate is not a thing of the past—acts of hate occur not only across the world but also right here on campus. Accordingly, MMU employees and students stand united against hate and reaffirm our Mercy values of compassion and hospitality. Just because we differ from one another does not give us the right to express hate toward one another. Our differences are welcome; hate is not.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS2/FOX28) — The meaning behind the anti-Trump protests can sometimes get lost in the noise, so in an effort to support those who are most vulnerable, many people are turning to a quiet act of solidarity. Some have chosen to clip one safety pin on their clothes to support those who might have felt attacked during Donald Trump’s campaign. David Butts, assistant director of diversity and engagement at Mount Mercy University, said it’s part of the ebb and flow of social movements.
