Steffano Montano

Steffano Montano from GRE

Steffano Montano is a practical theologian focusing on the practices of theological education across many settings. Currently, his research has explored the ways that theological educators can become prepared to discuss race and ethnicity and structure their pedagogies and learning environments for the formation of anti-racist and interculturally competent ministers. He is also interested in the ecologies of care that institutions of theological education build for the success of their students. In the past, he has explored how experiential and service-learning within theological education can help to form consciences and provide pathways to solidarity across diverse groups.

He serves as Associate Member Representative on the board of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States (ACHTUS), and is a member of the Association of Practical Theology (APT), the Religious Education Association (REA), and the American Academy of Religion (AAR).
