The Brueggeman Center for Dialogue


Since its founding, the Edward B. Brueggeman Center has worked collaboratively for a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world. We understand that real systemic change comes slowly. Collaboration, persistence, and partnerships are the foundations of systemic change. Today, the mission of the Center is concentrated in the promotion of the Four Universal Apostolic Preferences of the Jesuits (Society of Jesus), who established the University.

Programs and Events

Our projects use dialogue and collaboration to build social capital—the human-to-human engagement that forges the civic bonds upon which strong communities are built. We seek partners for all of the projects we undertake—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.

We were a proud planning partner of the 2024 Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit
