The Rev. Brian F.

Fr. Linnane joined the Religious Studies Department at Holy Cross in 1994. His scholarly publications are extensive, covering the disciplines of fundamental moral theology, health care ethics and virtue ethics. He served as Assistant Dean at Holy Cross from 2003 to 2005 and was named a Loyola University Maryland Trustee in 2000. He currently serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of the College of the Holy Cross; the Institute of Christian and Jewish Studies; the Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care in Baltimore; and the Board of Directors of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities.
