Bill Marvin

Lecturer
Full-Time Faculty
College of Arts and Sciences: Philosophy

Profile

Prof. Marvin's primary focus at UD is in applied ethics. He teaches several sections of business ethics, information ethics, and engineering ethics each year. In addition, he teaches for Antioch McGregor's degree completion program. He has had a relatively long and largely happy relationship with the University of Dayton. Philosophy has long been his primary passion. Although economic exigencies have tugged him on occasion away from academia and into the workforce, he has never ceased to read, think and write philosophy.

Faculty Perspective

I enjoy interacting with the students. In addition to this, I really appreciate UD's commitment to social justice. Much of what one learns in school can and does become obsolete over time. Learning to think critically and learning to think from an ethical perspective will always be of value.
