The Byzantine Catholic Seminary is pleased to announce that Metropolitan William has appointed Dr. Matthew Minerd as its new Director of Assessment effective June 25, 2021.
Dr. Minerd has served as a professor of philosophy and moral theology at Ss. Cyril and Methodius Byzantine Catholic Seminary since 2017 and was involved in the drafting of our self-study in preparation for the 2020 accreditation visitation by the Association of Theological Schools. In addition to his teaching duties, he is an active translator of theological and philosophical books and articles. This summer, his text, Made by God, Made for God: Catholic Morality Explained, written for non-academic readers, is to be published by Ascension Press in August. He lives in Uniontown with his wife and two daughters and is a parishioner at St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church, where he is a cantor.
The Director of Assessment leads the process of continuing Seminary assessment and evaluation working collaboratively with the Director of Accreditation, the faculty, and the staff to maintain expectations provided by accreditation and authorization standards.
