Brian G. Henning
Faculty Fellow for Sustainability

Professor, Philosophy and Environmental Studies
PhD, Fordham University
MPhil, Fordham University
MA, Fordham University
BA, Seattle University

Dr. Henning regularly teaches Environmental Ethics and Ethics of Global Climate Change, both of which count toward the Philosophy Major/Minor as well as the Environmental Studies Major/Minor. Outside of teaching, his service to the Gonzaga community focuses primarily on environmental issues through his work with the Advisory Council on Stewardship and Sustainability (2008-2015), which he helped found in 2008. Since 2015 Dr. Henning has served as Gonzaga's Inaugural Faculty Fellow for Sustainability, focusing on the creation of a Sustainability Across the Curriculum initiative called the Cataldo Project. Recently he has also become interested in the topic of fossil fuel divestment at Gonzaga University.

Philosophically, Dr. Henning is interested in the intersection of metaphysics, aesthetics, and ethics. At this rich crossroad he finds inspiration from the 20th century's most important systematic philosopher, Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947). Dr. Henning works to advance the study of Whitehead’s philosophy of organism as Director of Research for the Whitehead Research Project, Founding Executive Editor of the Edinburgh Critical Edition of the Complete Works of Alfred North Whitehead, and Founding Co-Editor of Contemporary Whitehead Studies book series.
