The national board of directors of University Faculty for Life (UFL) has approved the formation of a Notre Dame chapter.
UFL is a national multidisciplinary organization founded in 1989 to promote the research, dialogue and publication of university faculty and staff who respect the value of human life from its inception to natural death.
Officers heading the Notre Dame chapter will be Rev. Wilson D. Miscamble, C.S.C., professor of history, president; James D. Philpott, associate professor of political science and peace studies, vice president; and Walter Nicgorski, professor in the Program of Liberal Studies, secretary-treasurer.
Father Miscamble also has been elected to a two-year term on the UFL national board of directors.
The 21st annual UFL national conference will be held at Notre Dame in June 2011.
