Anthony Mansueto is a seasoned academic leader and a scholar, teacher, and interfaith organizer with roots in social theory, philosophy, and theology. His scholarship engages the most fundamental questions of meaning and value, drawing on insights from across humanity's diverse spiritual and civilizational traditions and on strategic political-theological analysis. He has published nine books and his articles have appeared in the Journal of Religion and Filosofskie Nauki as well as Commonweal and Tikkun.

He teaches using a question centered method enriched by the use of simulations and civic engagement and challenges students to approach study as a political and spiritual practice.

A strategic and relational leader, he has a record of strengthening liberal education, making the institutions he serves into centers for deliberation regarding questions of meaning and value, and refocusing workforce/economic development programs on ecologically sound, high value added activities which cultivate the full development of human capacities and cultivate local comparative advantages. His leadership strengthens relationships with community stakeholders while energizing faculty to take responsibility for the future of their institutions.

An experienced interfaith organizer and consultant he has a record of helping organizations committed to serving the Common Good find their niche, identify and cultivate leaders, build financial and institutional support, and develop effective strategic, operational, and tactical plans.

He also works with interested individuals to help them find their own spiritual path and civic and professional calling, cultivate the capacities and find the resources necessary to follow it, and be effective across their lifetimes.

His own spiritual practice follows the tradition of Merton, integrating Catholic and Buddhist elements with a commitment to justice which reflects deep learning from the Jewish, Muslim, and dao xue traditions.
