Wyoming Catholic College is pleased to announce the newest addition to its Board of Directors: Dr. Khalil Habib.
Dr. Habib is currently Associate Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Pell Honors Program at Salve Regina University. He graduated from the University of Maine and received his MA in Political Science from the University of Toronto in 1997 and his PhD in Political Philosophy from Boston University in 2005. After completing his MA at the University of Toronto, Dr. Habib briefly worked as a Group Sales Representative for Sun Life New York and as a Lecturer at Brandeis and Boston Universities. His work has appeared in prestigious philosophical journals such as the Review of Metaphysics, Ancient Philosophy, The Polish Journal of Philosophy, The VoegelinView, among others, and he is co-editor of Cosmopolitanism in the Age of Globalization: Citizens without States (Kentucky, 2011).
When asked about his somewhat unusual path to academia, Dr. Habib said that “once you've experienced the Great Books, there's no going back." “Dr. Khalil Habib combines a deep understanding of the liberal arts with experience in teaching, business, fundraising, and academic leadership,” said Dr. Glenn Arbery, the College’s president. “He started his career in the business world, but felt the powerful pull of the teaching life. We’re thrilled to have him join our Board.”
