Faculty Profile

  • Mark Sheldon

    Teaching philosophy to day-school undergraduates and medical students, plus tending to his duties as an assistant dean of Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, are more than enough to keep Mark Sheldon busy. But Sheldon chooses to teach at SPS, too. “I enjoy a mix of ages,” he says. “Older students bring a variety of experiences to class, making for interesting discussions.” Sheldon, who consistently appears on the University’s teaching honor roll, brings his talents to bear in encouraging those who have been away from school for years “to see themselves as fully capable of dealing with the rigors of the SPS program.” A distinguished senior lecturer in Weinberg’s philosophy department and in the Feinberg School of Medicine’s Medical Ethics and Humanities Program, Sheldon teaches a number of SPS ethics courses.
