Dr. Dean Manternach
Dr. Dean Manternach is the Dean of Arts and Sciences at Nebraska Methodist College in Omaha, NE. Dean received his Master’s degree in Theology from Catholic University in 1993 and his doctorate in Theology and Education from Boston College in 2003.
Dr. Manternach was a Professor at Clarke University in Dubuque, IA for 12 years in Religious Studies prior to his current appointment at NMC. His research focus has been in adult education, catechetics, male spirituality, and mission. He maintains his membership with the Religious Education Association and its forum work in Public Life and the Global Community. This forum focuses on the role of religious education at the interest of the common good, as well as on inter-religious education. This dovetails well with his current administrative work and teaching at Nebraska Methodist whose focus is on forming healthcare professionals who see and understand themselves as “Educated Citizens.”
