When I first thought about the LIMEX program, I wondered what I would do with a Master in Pastoral Studies. My parish’s pastoral associate knew I was considering job choices with that degree. She knew I was also thinking about closing a business I had for over 25 years. Not knowing where this journey would lead me, I decided to take a leap of faith and started LIMEX in 2002. About half way into the program our class was told to choose a focus course. There were so many that interested me, but marketplace ministry really got my attention.

Congratulations to LIM Professor Kathleen O'Gorman for receiving the Faculty Community Service Award at the College of Social Sciences Convocation on May 13, 2011. Here is the citation that was read for her:
One of the strengths as well as weaknesses of contemporary academic life is its narrowing of expertise. Specialization helps scholars to focus intently, yet it can prevent them from linking their work to that of others.
