“All of our faculty members are committed to marrying the life of the mind with the life of faith.”


Students who come to the Augustine Institute are marked both by deep ardor and deep intellectual formation. For that reason, we have assembled a faculty with the intellectual depth and pastoral heart to carry out the exciting mission of forming students intellectually, spiritually, as well as evangelically. Our faculty are dedicated to forming students in the Catholic intellectual tradition in order to enrich their spiritual lives and to prepare them for evangelical work. All of our faculty members are committed to marrying the life of the mind with the life of faith, and all hold a mandatum from the Catholic church. Our faculty includes biblical scholars, theologians and historians trained in their discipline, but who also have frontline experience with parish life and Catholic education.
