John Crowley-Buck, Ph.D.
Special Assistant to the Vice President
Office of Mission and Ministry
John Crowley-Buck earned his B.A. in Theology and English from Boston College in 2005. He then moved to Machala, Ecuador to teach English from 2005 to 2006. He returned to the U.S. in 2006 and enrolled in the M.A. program in Theological Ethics at Boston College, which he earned in 2008. He worked for a year in Boston, MA, before returning to academics in 2009, when he enrolled in the Ph.D. program in the Department of Theology at Loyola University Chicago. During his tenure at Loyola University Chicago, John worked for one year as a graduate research assistant in the Department of Theology, from 2009 to 2010. From 2010-2015, he was the graduate research assistant at The Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage. From 2015-2016, he was the Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Hank Center. Along with Mike Schuck, John is co-author of Democracy, Culture, Catholicism: Voices from Four Continents (Fordham UP, 2016). His recently completed dissertation is the product of his ongoing interest in the foundational questions of ethics—particularly with regard to the discourse of human rights—and their location within, and relationship to, the broader discourses of both Catholic and Christian ethics and theology.
