The Board of Trustees of the National Institute for Newman Studies is pleased to announce that Dr. Robert C. Christie has assumed the role of Executive Director.

Dr. Christie brings a wealth of talent and experience to this position. He holds a Ph.D. from Fordham University. His dissertation, entitled “The Logic of Conversion: The Harmony of Heart, Will, Intellect, and Imagination in John Henry Newman,” was directed by Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J., who was one of the world’s leading Newman scholars.  

Dr. Christie has been a full professor at DeVry University in New Jersey for twenty-one years. He has also taught Religion, Ethics, and Theology at Seton Hall University, St. Peter’s University, and Caldwell University.

In addition to his academic credentials, Dr. Christie also brings significant management experience, having held numerous positions in public administration and the arts.  

As Director of the National Institute for Newman Studies, he will be responsible for fulfilling its mission: to advance the study and spread the knowledge of the life, work, and influence of Blessed John Henry Newman. This will be accomplished via its three primary components: the Newman Library, both physical and digital; the Newman Studies Journal; and the Newman Scholars Program. Dr. Christie will also represent NINS at national conferences and will continue to develop and strengthen our affiliation with Duquesne University.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Robert C. Christie to Pittsburgh and to NINS.


Very Rev. Drew Morgan, C.O. Ph.D., NINS President
Catharine M. Ryan, NINS Secretary and Treasurer
