The Office for Mission & Ministry, often in collaboration with other departments and programs, offers a wide variety of programmatic opportunities to deepen our appreciation of all things Catholic and Augustinian, to reflect on the intersection of faith and reason and to become more familiar with faith traditions of all religions.

Outstanding scholars from our own campus, the region, and the world contribute to lectures, conferences and workshops, which are frequently free and open to the public.

Selected presentations are made available here with permission.
