As of Fall 2017, Neumann University is no longer accepting applications to our Certificate Programs in Spiritual Formation and Direction (SFD), including the 24-credit Certificate in Spiritual Formation and Direction and the 15-credit Certificate of Advanced Study in Spiritual Formation & Direction Supervision (CAS). The SFD program will close in May 2018, when our current cohort of students completes their studies.


If you are one of the many graduates, supervisors or faculty members who have participated in our Spiritual Formation and Direction programs over the years, please watch for coming information on a celebration of the contributions of this program, tentatively planned for spring 2018.
