The Theology Department hosts many events each academic year. The New Frontiers series of lectures showcases current scholarship by members of the department. During departmental colloquia, we invite guests to review works recently published by members of the Theology department. Our "Theology Night Live" topics draw hundreds of students and members from the community together for pizza and conversation about a variety of theological topics. We have also hosted conferences on Vatican II that have drawn audiences from all over this country and internationally. Visit also our events archive.
