Bannan Institutes are biennial thematic programs, spanning academic, public, and pastoral offerings to further an ethic of dialogue around issues of contemporary religious, cultural, and social significance at the University, in Silicon Valley, and beyond.  Supported through the generosity of the Bannan family endowment, Bannan Institute lectures, grants, publications, seminars, and fellows advance the Jesuit, Catholic vocation of the University engaging a pluralistic society in the 21st century.

Participants gather to discuss key questions at a Bannan event.
