  • Identifying opportunities and recommending strategies which support and advance the purpose of the Center.
  • Informing the Center's director and staff with regards to trends and changes in continuing education, pastoral ministry, interreligious dialogue, affairs of the Church and religious organizations, and educational needs of the community.
  • Reviewing and providing objective assessment and making recommendations on curricula, instruction, facilities and marketing.
  • Assisting the Center in promoting good relations with the Church, religious organizations and the greater community.
