Dr. John R. Wilcox

Distinguished Lasallian Educator 1996-97

Since 1974 you have been an invaluable member of the academic community of the College, serving your colleagues and students as teacher, Director of the Center for Professional Ethics, and Chair of the Religious Studies Department. You are perceived on campus as a dedicated person who contributes mightily to the Lasallian vision and mission of the College, most significantly in its religious and ethical dimension. As an academic professional, your commitment is characterized by an ecumenical and broadly based search for the truth, enriching the College by your evident “love of learning and love of the learner.” You understand, support, and enhance the Catholic identity of the College, and in the process perform a distinctive service for the Church. The many who come in contact with you, whether in routine daily encounters, or in formal advisement situations, see a man with a clear set of core values, a welcoming nature and, most importantly, a genuine concern for persons.
