 DONALDSON – Ancilla College will present the last of the Spring Lampen Lecture Series on Wednesday April 20th at 3pm (EST) in the Hardesty Room 231 in the college. The lecture titled “Human Trafficking: The Slaves Next Door,” will be delivered by Greg Stinson, executive director of institutional effectiveness at Valparaiso University. The lecture will discuss the epidemic of human trafficking and how unaware we are that the problem may be closer than we imagine.

This is another lecture presented by Ancilla College at no charge to anyone in the community. Past lectures in the series have focused on a wide-range of issues. Dr. Kate Kuesntler, an upstanding canon lawyer, discussed the view of education according to Catholic doctrine in her lecture, ““FORMATION OF THE HUMAN PERSON: Catholic Higher Education according to the Code of Canon Law” given last month. Another prior lecture given by Dr. James Riley, PhD, who has worked with institutions such as Syracuse University, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Delaware, focused on the inadvertent leadership qualities that arise from simply acting out of inner strength and passion in his “Servant Leadership: Leading from Within.”

The Lampen Lecure series was designed to combine the universality of the Catholic Church, the international character of the PHJC, and the Earth Charter, which is a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society. Named for Sr. Joel Lampen, Ancilla’s first president, the Lampen Lecture series was initiated by Sr. Carleen Wrasman in 2005. Ancilla College and the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ are proud to offer these lectures at no charge to anyone who might have interest in attending. If you have any questions about the details, please contact Sr. Jolise May, Vice President of Mission Integration, at or (574) 936-8898 ext. 361.
