Father Michael Sweeney, OP, served as President of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (DSPT) at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley from June, 2004 to July 2015. Ordained in 1979, Fr. Michael has served as both a university chaplain and as a pastor in a parish setting.

Father Michael's chief interest is the mission of the Church to the world. This requires, he notes, an understanding of the relationships within the Church between the clergy, the laity and parish community in light of that mission, and formation of the laity for their task as apostles.

In 1997 he co-founded with Sherry Weddell, a lay woman, the Catherine of Siena Institute, whose purpose is to assist parishes to provide a formation for lay men and women. The Institute has addressed over 50,000 Catholics throughout North America (and Asia).
