Fr. Brian John Zuelke, O.P. is a priest of the Order of Preachers (“Dominicans”) of the Province of St. Albert the Great. He began employment at the University of St. Thomas in August 2019 as an Adjunct Professor of Theology and Associate Chaplain in the Center for Campus Ministry. Fr. Brian earned his Master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Wyoming in 2010 while working for a fuel-cell R & D firm in Cheyenne, WY. During formation with the Order, he earned a dual Master’s in Divinity and Theology from Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, MO in 2019. He hopes to bring his twin interests in theology and the natural sciences to bear in his work at UST.
