The Edward B. Brueggeman Center for Dialogue at Xavier University is dedicated to providing space and opportunity for dialogue about the critical issues of our age. It is founded upon the belief that the paths that lead to solutions to our most serious problems will emerge out of dialogue. Interreligious dialogue remains the distinguishing characteristic and integrating factor but in order to truly address the critical issues, the conversation must also include the other academic disciplines, representatives from the business community, government and civic society. The work of the center includes conferences, research and publications, and interfaith and inter-religious activities as well as exploring new forms of collaborative engagement on issues of religious, social and cultural diversity, social and economic justice, ecological sustainability, and local and global responsibility.

The Greenacres Foundation was founded by Louis and Louise Nippert as their greatest gift to the community. The Foundation provides education experiences for area school children in the areas of environment, sustainable agriculture, cultural arts and equine for free. Each experience is customized to the needs of the classroom teacher and concepts on the state standards tests. In 2015, over 25,000 school children participated in customized programs. Greenacres operates a sustainable agriculture farm producing grass fed beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey and vegetables that are available at the Greenacres Farm Store. Research into agriculture methods is conducted on the farm to promote sustainable agriculture techniques and healthy food choices. Located in the middle of Greenacres' 600 acres, The Greenacres Arts Center is available for rental for private events and charity fund raisers. The Greenacres Foundation is the steward of the Louis Dieterle Nippert Musical Arts Fund that distributes $5 million each year to performing arts organizations. For more information visit
