The Center for Faith and Culture is recognized by the Roman Curia Pontifical Council for Culture and is listed in the Pontificium Consilium De Cultura, Catholic Cultural Centres.
The Center for Faith and Culture provides a Master of Arts in Faith and Culture and a Certificate of Faith and Culture as core programs. This work is supported through the core mission to seek to understand and affect the relationship between the Gospel and the American way of life. Through dialogue, classes, events and seminars, the Center for Faith and Culture bolsters participants to live as faithful citizens of our democratic republic. Our academic and faith formation programs bring the Catholic voice to the ongoing conversation about the meaning of life, and the liberty and pursuit of happiness we hold in common as Americans. Additionally, in its activities the Center for Faith and Culture relates the Gospel to various American subcultures including Hispanic/Latino, African-American, Asian-American, and Native-American.
The Center incorporates both theory and practice, with special emphasis on the formation of community leadership who will be empowered to integrate faith and culture through ongoing reflection and action. We believe holistic spiritual development is at the very core of all cultural development.

The Donald S. Nesti, CSSp Center for Faith & Culture
The Center seeks to understand and affect the relationship between and among the many facets of the American way of life in relation to God’s ongoing, loving encounter with humanity. We educate faith-full citizens to be artisans of dialogue and proclamation in articulating a God-centered vision of the world and how that vision strengthens the institutions that govern us as a people. Through its programmatic offerings the Center serves the local and regional Catholic, ecumenical and interreligious communities, our sister university communities, civic society, and various professional segments of our culture.
