At Xavier, she teaches core courses such as ‘Ethics as an Introduction to Philosophy,’ and ‘Philosophical Perspectives.’ She received her Ph.D. in philosophy from Tulane University.
The Montesquieu Forum at Roosevelt University, a JMC partner program, advances the study of the classical and European heritage that informed the American Founding.
The Forum supports course work on political philosophy, covering texts from the Bible and such ancient writers as Plato, Cicero, and Plutarch to the early modern writers like Francis Bacon, William Shakespeare, John Locke, and, of course, Baron de Montesquieu.
The Montesquieu Forum also presents an annual series of public lectures and conferences on these topics, hosted mainly on the Roosevelt University campus. It has also hosted three Summer Academies for high school teachers, two high school essay competitions on the Declaration of Independence, and an essay competition and conference for Roosevelt University Honors Students.
