The Heritage Foundation is pleased to announce that Dr. Robert P. George of Princeton University has been elected to The Heritage Foundation Board of Trustees. George is Princeton’s McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and director of the university’s James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University.

“I couldn’t be happier with the Board’s selection,” said Heritage President Kay Coles James. “Robbie George is a wonderful person who just so happens to possess one of the most brilliant minds in America. He’s a world-class ethicist, political philosopher, and legal theorist.”

A graduate of Swarthmore College, Harvard Law School and Harvard Divinity School, George also holds a bachelor degree and two doctorate degrees (in civil law and philosophy) from Oxford University.

Long active in public service as well as academics, George has served as chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom and as a member of the President’s Council on Bioethics, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and UNESCO’s World Commission on the Ethics of Science and Technology.

Welcome, Dr. George, to the Heritage Foundation Board. I love the conservative organization and have been a supporter for many years. My husband graduated from Princeton in 1966 and I, honestly, did not realize there were any Christian professors there. I am encouraged!

Dr. George welcome aboard to the Heritage Foundation. I am looking forward to seeing what you have to offer and suggest to this fine institution. I am most interested in learning more about the ethical aspects of not only the law but the bioethics of science and the medical fields. Ethics is an essential aspect of conservative thinking and truly needs to be a vital part of the Heritage Foundation. Thank you for your willingness to share your knowledge and expertise with all of us who support the Heritage Foundation.

Heritage needs your guidance and help in these devolving times from the Christian ethos to the modern pagan ethos and the chaos that comes with it.

Frank Partee - March 10, 2019

Heritage can be proud that its objectives and concerns could attract a young and highly qualified person like you to join in its (our) endeavors. Please – what can you recommend to counter the horrific new policy of far left political factions and members of Congress who advocate abortion of live infants? Where has God gone in our culture?

M. Juanita Mueller - March 10, 2019

Congratulations Dr. George. Have seen you many times on EWTN. God bless you. Keep up the good work.

Alice Todd Biays - March 10, 2019

Dear Dr. George,
Welcome to Heritage. We expect to be blessed by your scholarship, experience and wisdom.
I’m glad to know that Princeton still has professors who can expound positively on conservative viewpoints. The media celebrates those who make statements such as, children through age two are parasites and can, therefore, rightly be disposed of if that seems expedient.
My father, brothers and some nieces and nephews are Princeton grads, so the apparent shift in values and perspectives has disturbed me.
With prayers for you and for our country,

patricia oliver - March 11, 2019

May God direct you and keep you in His care for the generous giving of your time to the work of the Heritage..Thank you Dr. George,

David Vigna - March 11, 2019

Dale Kimball - March 11, 2019

Congratulations Dr. George,
It is heartening to know there are rational thinkers in our top universities still. Welcome to Heritage Foundation Board.

Jerry Hiller - March 14, 2019

Congratulations to Heritage and Dr. George for associating together. That will be a blessing to all of us to support Heritage.

As to a pro-life idea, can a state amend its constitution by redefining the definition of when a human life begins from occurring at birth to occurring at fertilization? And maintaining the protection during that new timetable of due process of law and the equal protection to the lives of both the child and the mother during all of pregnancy? If this is possible, it would establish protection from the creation of a single cell zygote all the way to birth.

juanita douglas - March 18, 2019

Welcome aboard, Dr George…so glad you chose to serve on the board, and to stand with other people who are honest and true. God bless you and all those you stand tall with.
