Faculty Dialogue Luncheons

The Center for Faith and Learning is an advocate for faculty of all faiths who see teaching as vocation and who are interested in the intersection of their faith traditions with the Catholic, Augustinian identity of Villanova University.

To facilitate dialogue on these topics, to nurture and enlarge our community of like-minded colleagues, the Center for Faith and Learning hosts regular lunch time discussions. Short presentations from faculty help structure our conversations.
