The Killeen Chair is named after the late Rev. Sylvester Killeen, O. Praem., the second abbot of St. Norbert Abbey and chancellor of the college. Established in 1984, the Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy aims to bring well-known scholars of theology and philosophy, and their work, to the St. Norbert College campus. The programs sponsored by the Killen Chair, including the annual lecture series, are designed to keep the St. Norbert College community and northeast Wisconsin abreast of current scholarship on the theological and philosophical issues of the present era.
