    First Topic - The Man Who Rebuilt Steubenville and Inspired a New Orthodoxy in US Catholic Higher Education

    Father Michael Scanlan's name has become so closely linked to Steubenville, Ohio, that it's a bit surprising to learn that he grew up in midtown Manhattan. The Third Order Regular Franciscan has spent 42 of his 47 years as a priest at Franciscan University of Steubenville and played a large part in bringing the college back from near death. This summer, though, Father Scanlan, 79, is retiring from his post as chancellor, a position he has held for the past 11 years. Before that, he spent 26 years as the university's president. We talk with Fr. Scanlan about his 42 years at the school known simply as Steubie-U.

    Second Topic - TBA
