Faculty Spotlight

Meet Robert Bourgeois, Ph.D.

In his courses, Robert Bourgeois brings to bear the universe story, history, and culture as forces which shape behavior and perception. A principal aim is the application of logical criteria to the evaluation of multiple cultural narratives, those of our Western inheritance and those of others.

"When I first came on the Albertus campus, I was immediately aware of a culture of courtesy"

One premise of his courses is that a citizen of the United States is also a citizen of the planet. Another premise is the urgency of resisting materialist narratives of existence which would extinguish the spiritual dimension of the human being. A Dominican approach entails contemplation of the underlying webs of interconnected-ness between humanity and nature and among all cultures.

The mission of the Global Studies program is to provide students with a multidimensional understanding of the forces that are pulling the peoples of the world together into shared destinies, to prepare them for employment in a globalized world, and to equip them with the intellectual tools and moral perspectives to respond to the ethical and environmental challenges which are global in nature and require global responses.
