Dr. Burt Fulmer, Associate Professor, joined the Religion and Philosophy faculty in 2007. He received a Ph.D. in theology and an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies from Vanderbilt University in 2006. He also holds an M.A. in the teaching of writing and literature from George Mason University and a B.A. in philosophy from Georgetown University. Before teaching graduate and undergraduate students at CBU and Vanderbilt, he taught and tutored students of all ages in the Washington, DC area and in Guatemala City. He is committed to courses that discuss theology and Christianity in connection with contemporary political, social, and economic issues, especially from the perspectives of Catholic Social Teaching and Black Liberation Theology. He hopes that he can help his students to think critically about their lives, their world, and the decisions they are called upon to make each day.
