The Kieval Institute’s programs bring the Franciscan vision of the college to life.The Institute provides programming that improves the academic environment for Jewish faculty and students by making research funds available, improving the library's holdings and by bringing major scholars to the campus. These programs have created an opportunity for Jews and Christians to meet together to discuss areas of mutual concern, to express their diversity and rejoice in their commonalities.
