The Newman Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture is a new apostolate of the Diocese of Lincoln and is a partnership of the St. Gregory the Great Seminary with the St. Thomas Aquinas Newman Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The first pilot course was taught by Dr. John Pepino in the Spring Semester 2016. Dr. John Freeh (left) was hired as the Inaugural Director of the Institute and began teaching the Fall Semester 2016 course. The Spring 2017 course offering, The Literature of Mercy, is now open for registration. More courses are being planned for the coming semesters. The plan is to offer two courses each semester for two years, so that anyone Freshmen to Senior may take the courses. At first, courses will be offered to undergraduates in Lincoln, who can take courses offered by the Newman Institute and the Newman Center on campus. Students can apply the credit from the courses to their degrees at the University of Nebraska, or at other institutions.
