Dr. Nick Rademacher, former faculty member at Cabrini University in Radnor, PA, is now on the faculty of the University of Dayton, in Dayton, OH. The photo clip below is from an article that recently appeared in the University of Dayton Magazine. Nick and his faculty colleague, Joy Willenbrink Conte, taught together in new 12-week minicourse, entitled Educating the Whole Person.
In the course of the article, Nick states, “My approach to teaching and learning has been inspired by the educational philosophy of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, an immigrant to the United States and the first U.S. saint, who wrote about the ‘education of the heart’. This approach seeks to facilitate intellectual development and the formation of one’s heart and then putting that into action in service of others. That’s one of the reasons why I really appreciate the title of this mini-course.”
We are grateful to Nick for continuing to espouse and model the “Education of the Heart” as he teaches his students at the University of Dayton. We are also grateful to Michelle Sherman, Nick’s wife and a former Cabrini Mission Corps missioner for sending this article to The Update. Nick and Michelle really continue hold the Cabrinian charism deep within their hearts.
