Where Faith and Culture Collide w/ Dr. Kevin Stuart

The crossroads of where faith and culture collide - that's where the Nesti Center for Faith and Culture goes to work.

In this conversation, Dr. Richard Ludwick, president of University of Saint Thomas (UST), sits down with Dr. Kevin Stuart, Director of the UST Nesti Center for Faith & Culture. Dr. Stuart describes the Nesti Center for Faith and Culture and its impact on people in their day to day life and how they engage in the public square. He describes how the Nesti Center is looking toward the future of faith, what may come next and how we as a society can make better informed choices by listening to the Holy Spirit. A self-proclaimed "political junkie," Dr. Stuart also shares some very interesting data relating to church attendance and marriage.

At UST, Dr. Stuart is also Director of the Master of Public Policy & Administration Program, Director of Catholic Studies and Assistant Professor of Political Science
