The Brueggeman Center for Dialogue

Working Collaboratively for a more Just, Peaceful, and Sustainable World


Today, the mission of the Edward B. Brueggeman Center for Dialogue is concentrated in the promotion of the Four Universal Apostolic Preferences of the Jesuits (Society of Jesus), who established the University.

The Center continues, as it has in the past, to seek partners—regionally, nationally, and globally—to collaborate in the essential work of deepening interfaith understanding and promoting systemic change on issues of social and environmental justice

Most recently, under the leadership of President Colleen M. Hanycz, Xavier University has committed to participate in Pope Francis’s action plan of a Seven-Year Journey Towards Integral Ecology. A Steering Committee, comprised of Xavier faculty and staff under the leadership of William Madges, former faculty director of the Brueggeman Center, has begun to develop a plan to boldly advance each of Laudato Si’s seven goals. 

We understand that real systemic change comes slowly. Collaboration, persistence, and partnerships are the foundations of systemic change. Today, as yesterday, we are committed to the long road of helping to build a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world—collaboratively.
