Franciscan University of Steubenville

Faith speaks to reason—and reason responds.

In the beautiful tension of the two, we find eternal truth. God gifted us our intellects so that we can hear the symphony of dialogue between faith and reason. But, as with all important conversations, it’s imperative to ask the question—are we listening?

"Faith and reason are like two wings upon which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart the desire to know the truth — in a word, to know himself — so that by knowing and loving God, men and women can come to the fullness of the truth about themselves."



The popular EWTN show is now a podcast! Each month, tune in to listen to some of the world’s top Catholic scholars, thinkers, and leaders hosted by Fr. Dave Pivonka and panelist Dr. Regis Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn.

Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR, and Dcn. Bob Rice see hope and humor in a crazy world! Sports, family life, theology, and superheroes are recurring topics in their weekly conversations. Join Fr. Dave and Dcn. Bob as they see reasons for hope all around us.

In celebration of the 75th Jubilee of the University, alumni throughout the 75 years will share their candid stories of life on campus and the impact of the university on their life. Join us every 2 weeks as we hear legends from the hill.
