First Endowed Chair of Spirituality appointed

An engaged and dynamic scholar committed to expanding inclusion, fostering empowerment and developing citizen leaders has been appointed as the Inaugural Endowed Chair of Spirituality at Michigan State University. The position is the first of its kind at MSU and at any U.S. educational institution. It is among 82 new endowed faculty positions established during MSU’s Empower Extraordinary campaign.

Morgan Shipley, associate professor of religious studies at MSU, will transition in August 2021 to the Foglio Endowed Chair in Spirituality within MSU’s College of Arts and Letters. The chair is named in honor of the late Father Jake Foglio, an alumnus who served as a faculty member, priest and mentor to student athletes and coaches.

The full story is available on the College of Arts and Letters website.
