Peace and Justice in Catholic Social Thought
A trio of Regis students are nearing the successful completion of their 2014 “Community Dialogue Project. The student team threesome, Rocio Ramos, Andrew Horner, and Gabriela DeRobles (pictured at the front of the group below) each presented a facet of the program and presided over an exchange of responses and ideas from a panel consisting of CEO instructors, past and present GED students, an ICCS client, a CEO volunteer, Probation Department counselors and instructors from the Resource Educational Exchange Center (RECC) in Lakewood where the presentation was conducted.
Another Regis student participated in session – Viviana Bracamontes. She is currently serving at ICCS West in the CEO women’s program.
The purpose of the project is to “come together to explore in-depth a range of issues that are central to (the) community’s understanding of Catholic social thought and social justice. This student team is part of a larger group of Regis Students working at two other CEO programs – ICCS West and the ICCS Men’s Facility both in Lakewood.
The students are required to complete the project by writing in-depth reflections on their experiences – which CEO intends to share with the Community. Peace and Justice in Catholic Social Thought class is under the guidance of Professor Geoffrey Bateman at Regis University.
GED Pop Quiz Administered
The Regis students started off the presentation with a “pop” quiz presenting typical questions from the new GED exam. Many in attendance expressed surprise at the difficulty of some of the questions. The math questions were much more complex that most had imagined.
