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.
