Julie Hanlon Rubio is Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at St. Louis University. Her research brings together Catholic social teaching and Christian theology on marriage and family. She is the author of Family Ethics: Practices for Christians (Georgetown University Press, 2010). Currently, she is at work on a new book tentatively titled, Both Personal and Political: Catholic Reflections on American Social Problems. Most of her writing comes out of a commitment to bridge the traditional gap between personal morality and social justice.
She has participated in interdisciplinary gatherings of social scientists and theologians sponsored by the Religion, Culture, & Family Project, the Lily Endowment, and the Institute for American Values. As a board member of the Society of Christian Ethics, she spearheaded efforts of the Women’s Caucus to encourage the SCE to promote adoption of family-friendly policies in academic institutions. At SLU Dr. Rubio teaches courses in ethics and is the director the M.A. program in theology.
