A Letter from the President
Villanova’s exceptional faculty members are the cornerstone of our vibrant academic community. They are leading researchers, celebrated experts, trusted thought leaders and, above all, skilled teacher-scholars who have a profound impact on the lives of Villanova’s students.
Here, the collaborative pursuit of knowledge and the application of important discoveries are designed to better our world, while simultaneously providing partnerships for faculty and students to participate in groundbreaking innovations.
In this President’s Report, we celebrate the scholarly work of our faculty, with representatives from each of our six schools and colleges. They highlight the excellence that distinguishes Villanova and roots us in the Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition.
These professors—some who are early in their careers and some whose work spans decades—are advancing knowledge both in their fields and for the common good. They draw on their insights, expertise and passions to provide cutting-edge educational experiences for our students, and they share their incredible work to the benefit of communities both nearby and around the world.
We are fortunate to have many such remarkable and committed faculty who call Villanova their academic home, and whose scholarship, discoveries and innovations have such impact. They are truly igniting change that reverberates well beyond our campus.
The Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, ’75
