University Faculty for Life is a non-denominational, multi-disciplinary organization which welcomes the membership and participation of all pro-life faculty members in institutions of higher education. Its focus is on issues related to abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. Many papers presented at its annual conferences are quite profound. And the guys who go are fun. It's one of my very favorite yearly events, one which I try never to miss. (Full disclosure: I'm on the Board, so I have to go.)
Its 2007 conference will be June 1-2 at Villanova University near Philadelphia, PA. Attendance is open to current or former members of college, university, and seminary faculty and their spouses, and to others by individual request.
The presentations will begin at 2:00pm the afternoon of Friday, June 1st. Registration is only $60, which includes a wine and cheese reception, continental breakfast, refreshments between sessions, lunch, and the concluding banquet on Saturday evening. Accommodation is available in guest apartments on Villanova’s campus. Registration form.
The plenary speakers at the conference will be Helen M. Alvare, Associate Professor of Law at Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law and David L. Schindler, Dean of the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage & Family. There may still be time to submit your own papers. Check it out at http://www.uffl.org/conference.htm
