Occasional Papers

By Members of the Campus Community

Occasional Papers is a regular publication produced by the Office for Mission Effectiveness.  Faculty, staff, and students are invited to reflect on topics or themes relevant to the Catholic mission / Augustinian heritage of the University, and share their perspectives in original compositions of varying length.  Content will be suitable for classroom use and is encouraged.

The goals of this publication are to:

  • facilitate Villanova University’s focused commitment to living out its mission in every facet of University life;
  • provide initiatives that address our Augustinian intellectual and moral heritage, the relationship between faith and reason, and Catholic Social Teaching.
