Robert B. Kruschwitz, Director.
Dr. Kruschwitz came to Baylor University in 2000 to become the first Director of the Center for Christian Ethics and Professor of Philosophy. He oversees the programs of the Center and serves as general editor of Christian Reflection, the Center's quarterly series in faith and ethics.
Previously he taught for twenty-one years at Georgetown College (Kentucky) where he had chaired the faculty and the philosophy department. He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin and a B.A. degree from Georgetown College.
An early member of the Society of Christian Philosophers (1982) and a founder of the Baptist Association of Philosophy Teachers (1988), he received the George Walker Redding Faculty Award for Outstanding Christian Service from Georgetown College in 1997 for his leadership in integrating Christian faith with teaching and research. He co-edited The Virtues (Wadsworth, 1987), a pioneering anthology of recent essays on moral character, and his articles and reviews on ethics have appeared in Faith and Philosophy, Perspectives in Religious Studies, Faculty Dialogue, and The Thomist. At Baylor he teaches a popular course on the Seven Deadly Sins.
Vicki, his wife, is a Texas native. For recreation they hike and read a lot. Both are amateur photographers and fans of traditional music, especially from Atlantic Canada. Vicki is the family's genealogist. Recently Bob has taken up the hobby of amateur astronomy. As members of DaySpring Baptist Church, they both sing in choir, Bob teaches Sunday School, and Vicki volunteers in the church office.

Heather Hughes, Publication Specialist and Project Coordinator.
Ms. Hughes joined the staff of the Center for Christian Ethics in January of 2010. She serves as production assistant and copyeditor on the Center's publications, assists the Director in planning and promoting Center projects, and oversees day-to-day operations of the office.
A native of Lake Forest, Illinois, Ms. Hughes received a BA in English, with a minor in Philosophy, and is currently finishing her MA in English Literature at Baylor University. In her study of religion and literature she focuses on twentieth century Catholic authors-with the unaccountable exception of Sir Thomas Malory (c.1405-1471), whom she is more recently getting to know. She spends her free time reading, cooking, riding her bicycle, drinking too much coffee, and enjoying her community of good friends. She is a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church.
