Faith Seeking Understanding
The Department of Theology is at the heart of Notre Dame’s education in faith and reason. Guided by the ideal of “faith seeking understanding,” the faculty engage in critical reflection in six areas: moral theology, world religions and world church, history of Christianity, liturgy, biblical studies, and systematic theology.

Jan's dedication to her students and to their integral formation as ministers were phenomenal. In her own life she modeled that integration in exemplary fashion, and she challenged, cajoled, and inspired her colleagues and students to do the same. Her influence on all she touched is lasting, but we already miss her joyful presence, leadership, and friendship.
