Seattle University President Stephen V. Sundborg, S.J., announced that Philosophy Professor Dan Dombrowski, PhD, is the 2016-17 recipient of the McGoldrick Fellowship. Named for James B. McGoldrick, S.J., a legendary Seattle University Jesuit, the fellowship recognizes a faculty member exemplifying the mission and ideals of our institution. The McGoldrick Fellowship is the most prestigious award conferred by the university upon a member of the faculty.
“Extraordinarily prolific as a scholar, wholly committed to his students and generous as a mentor to colleagues, Professor Dombrowski is the embodiment of a Jesuit education at its finest,” Fr. Sundborg said.
Dombrowski, who joined the Philosophy faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences in 1988, has published 18 books, including the just-released A History of the Concept of God: A Process Approach, and more than 170 articles for scholarly journals in philosophy, theology, classics, and literature. Internationally renowned and frequently sought out for his expertise on a variety of subjects, this past fall he addressed the European Union Parliament on the roles of religion and politics in our modern world.
Dombrowski serves on the editorial boards of a number of journals and the boards of professional associations and societies throughout the country and internationally. He has received numerous awards for his scholarship and teaching.
