The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy Lecture Series will feature "Working for the Common Good: Do I Have to Leave My Job to Do It?" presented by Michael Naughton, Alan W. Moss Professor of Catholic Social Thought at the University of St. Thomas. The lecture will take place on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. in the Fort Howard Theater, located in the Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Naughton is a full professor with a joint appointment in the departments of ethics and business law and Catholic studies at St. Thomas University. He received his Ph.D. in theology and society from Marquette University and his M.B.A. from the University of St. Thomas. He has published articles at the intersection of Catholic social thought and business in various academic venues, including America, Health Progress, Ave Maria Law Journal, and the Journal of Religion and Business Ethics. He has authored and edited a number of books, including Managing as if Faith Mattered: Christian Social Principles in the Modern Organization (with Helen Alford). In 2009, Naughton was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters from the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, Calif., and was inducted into the school's College of Fellows.

The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy was established in 1984 to bring figures in the fields of theology and philosophy to the St. Norbert College campus. The Killeen Chair draws attention to the importance of theology and philosophy in a Catholic liberal arts education and highlights the commitment of St. Norbert College to provide an education that is personally, intellectually and spiritually challenging. The Killeen Chair is an appropriate way of honoring Abbot Killeen's many contributions to St. Norbert College, the Norbertine order and the wider community.
