SISK TAKES OVER AS CO-DIRECTOR OF MURPHY INSTITUTE This fall, Professor Gregory Sisk , Laghi Distinguished Chair in Law, and David P. Deavel , editor of the St. Thomas LOGOS Journal and visiting assistant professor of Catholic studies, took over as co-directors of the Terrence J. Murphy Institute for Catholic Thought, Law and Public Policy. Previous co-directors, Herrick Professor of Law Elizabeth Schiltz ’10 CSMA and Department of Catholic Studies Professor Robert Kennedy, PhD, have stepped away after nearly a decade leading the institute. “We have big, big shoes to fill, given the tremendous contributions made by Lisa, Bob and other co-directors over the years. If we succeed as successor co-directors, it will be because we built on the firm foundation our predecessors have laid,” Sisk said. “While I am sure that David and I will make our own mark in the years to come, I am excited at the outset to carry through on various initiatives already underway.” Learn more about the Murphy Institute and register for upcoming events at .
