About the Keynote Speaker

Dr. Maria Teresa Dávila serves as Visiting Associate Professor of Practice of Religious and Theological Studies at Merrimack College, North Andover, Massachusetts. She focuses her energies on questions of ethics and public theology in the United States such as migrant and racial justice, the use of force, the role of government, and diverse visions of the common good. She grounds her efforts on the option for the poor as a central insight of who God is, how God acts in the world, and what ought to be the Church's character. As an activist scholar, her publications include works on race, racial justice and theological ethics; Latino/a mujerista ethics and public theology; immigration; and the use of the social sciences in Christian ethics. She is the coeditor of Living With(out) Borders: Theological Ethics and Peoples on the Move (Orbis, 2016).

Hispanic-Latinx Center

The Center was established in 1988 to bring Hispanic-Latinx culture and experience into the life of the seminary. The Center's mission has been to meet the needs of Hispanic-Latinx students, pastors, parishioners, and community leaders in creative, insightful, useful, and organic ways. It also seeks to cultivate a community of friends who have a heart and concern about the realities of Latinx communities across the United States, Latin America, and beyond. Latinx faculty at Garrett-Evangelical have been committed to this cause and have offered specific courses focusing on topics directly relevant to Latinx and/or minoritized racial-ethnic students.
