It wouldn’t be entirely hyperbolic to say that the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies at USC saved my career from utter ruin.
With IACS and especially the Generations in Dialogue Program coming into my life at the moment I needed but couldn’t have known about, I was ready to respond to a moment in history I had been preparing for more than twenty years.
The Institute is a wonderful venture. I love the way it welcomes honest dialogue among people of all faiths and the unusual way it works to deepen and strengthen the Catholic tradition. I believe that the goals of the Institute, though ambitious, are absolutely attainable. That is why I support it.
