The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has appointed philosophy professor Christopher Kaczor as a doctrinal consultant to its Doctrine Committee. Kaczor will be one of four doctrinal consultants who advise the U.S. Catholic bishops as they shape church policy and teaching. Kaczor will serve as the committee’s primary consultant on ethics.

Kaczor is a philosophy professor with expertise in Catholic ethics and bioethics. He also directs LMU’s ethics program, and is the author of 12 books, most recently “Life Issues, Medical Choices: Questions and Answers for Catholics” (Servant Books, 2016) and “The Gospel of  Happiness: Rediscover Your Faith Through Spiritual Practice and Positive Psychology” (Image, 2015). 

“This appointment is an honor for Loyola Marymount University and for the College,” said Robbin D. Crabtree, dean of the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts. “It is a testament to Professor Kaczor’s record of scholarly accomplishments, his stature as an ethicist, and his commitments as a Catholic public intellectual.”
