Andrew Goodwin, 56, died in an apartment fire in Berkeley early Tuesday morning.


"Andrew was the type of person that put his students first," [program assistant Lydia] Fedulow said. "He was always very concerned about students and making sure they were getting the most of their experience at USF. He was very brilliant. He will be missed a lot by faculty, staff and students."

Catholic San Francisco: Pope Francis models ‘what it means to be fully human,’ says Jesuit

Catholic San Francisco: Pope Francis models ‘what it means to be fully human,’ says Jesuit | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Pope Francis is offering the contemporary world the example of Christ as a model of “what it means to be fully human,” in a way that is consistent with the previous two popes but breaks new ground in putting the Gospel into action, Jesuit Father James Hanvey said in an interview with Catholic San Francisco.“Most of the issues we’re fighting are not religious but what it means to be human,” said Father Hanvey, the current Lo Schiavo Chair in Catholic Social Thought at the Joan and Ralph Lane Center at the University of San Francisco. “What does it mean to have a destiny, more than materialism? There’s a deep hunger in the human spirit that contemporary life does not answer.” [via @catholic_sf]

Fr. James Hanvey, S.J. is a member of the British Province of the Society.

The Los Angeles Times: Keeping up with Kevin Starr

The Los Angeles Times: Keeping up with Kevin Starr | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Asking Kevin Starr a question is like turning on a fire hose. First there's a blast of erudition. Then, as his intellect gathers, information rushes out in a deluge.


After graduating from the University of San Francisco, then a small Jesuit university, he served two years in the Army and went to Harvard on a fellowship. It was at Harvard, where he earned his PhD, that he began to think about the history of California, from an insider's perspective.[via @latimes]

University of San Francisco's insight:

Kevin Starr is the California State Librarian Emeritus and University Professor of History at the University of Southern California, where he researches California history, history of American culture, urban history, and government. More than 30 years in the making, his eight-volume book series titled Americans and the California Dream, 1850–1915 captures the enigmatic blend of dreams and hardscrabble reality that loosely define California. Starr earned his master's and Ph.D. at Harvard University and his master's in library science at the University of California, Berkeley. He graduated from USF in 1962 with a bachelor's degree in English.
