Earlier this month, the more than 150-year-old university announced the merging of its Department of Theology and School of Franciscan Studies. The new department, housed under the School of Arts and Sciences, will strengthen theology and Franciscan studies offerings to undergraduate students by allowing the department to offer more courses, said Fr. David.
“This will put a greater number of professors with a wide range of expertise at the service of our students looking for a wider variety of courses in theology,” he said. “We want students to appreciate the Franciscan intellectual tradition that has so much to say to help the world heal from consumerism, terrorism and the disregard for human rights around the world.”
