David J. Gilbert

Dean of Trinity Hall, Instructor of Great Texts and Philosophy, and Head of St. Anne's House

David J. Gilbert received his Master of Arts in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at Talbot School of Theology, and a BA in Philosophy from the University of North Texas.  He spent several years teaching philosophy and religion to sailors on board three deployed United States Navy aircraft carriers with the Navy’s College Afloat program. He was most recently a founding faculty member and the Associate Director of The Academy at Houston Baptist University.

As a native Texan and identical twin, David defends the use of “y’all” and constantly refers to himself as “we.” He cares about the history of cinema, books by Dostoevsky, and a solid joke. When he’s not reading for pleasure or to prepare for classes, he enjoys going to the movies, wrestling with his dog, and spending time at home with his new wife Caitlin.
