New trustee appointed at Wyo Catholic College, LanderNov 4, 2016 From wire reports
Wyoming Catholic College in Lander has named Dr. Khalil Habib to its board of directors.
He is 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 Ph.D in political philosophy from Boston University in 2005. After completing his MA at the University of Toronto, Habib briefly worked as for Sun Life New York and as a lecturer at Brandeis and Boston universities.
His work has appeared in 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."
Wyoming Catholic College president Dr. Glenn Arbery said "Dr. Khalil Habib combines a deep understanding of the liberal arts with experience in teaching, business, fundraising, and academic leadership. 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."
Wyoming Catholic College is a four-year coeducational Catholic college incorporated in 2005, offering an authentically Catholic, traditional liberal arts education that "forms the whole person -- mind, body, and spirit," a college statement reads. "This is accomplished by a uniquely-integrated academic program, by immersing students in the beauty of the outdoors, and by cultivating the Catholic spiritual heritage in a close-knit college community."
