Profile
A former high school English teacher and Notre Dame track and field coach, Ed joined the Notre Dame Writing Faculty in 2000 as an adjunct professor. In that year he partnered with colleagues from the University Writing Program and the Center for Social Concerns to create the Community-Based Learning arm of Writing and Rhetoric. Inspired in particular by the ideas of Wendell Berry, Ed works to develop a sense of pragmatic idealism in his students. He knows that by reading, writing, and thinking about issues related to community, social justice, and service, students position themselves to make a positive difference in the world. He and his wife, Joanne, are the proud parents of four children and eight grandchildren.
