EPPC Celebrates George Weigel’s 35 Years

June 1, 2024

June 2024 marks 35 years of George Weigel’s scholarship at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Mr. Weigel served as EPPC’s president from 1989 to 1996, was a senior fellow from 1996 to 2007, and in November 2007 was named the organization’s first Distinguished Senior Fellow. He currently holds EPPC’s William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies. 

EPPC President Ryan T. Anderson praised Mr. Weigel’s time at EPPC:

A counselor of popes, presidents, cabinet officers, legislators, and university presidents, George Weigel has changed the course of the Church and our nation for the better. His 35 years at EPPC are nothing short of extraordinary in terms of intellectual output that has made a difference. Through his thirty-some books, his weekly columns, his periodic longform essays, and his various public lectures, summer seminars, and seminary courses, George has done more than perhaps any layperson in the past half century when it comes to sentire cum Ecclesia. His time at EPPC is EPPC at its finest.
