Don Kirby is a Professor of Christian Ethics at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, N.Y., an ordained Roman Catholic priest, and a member of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) of the New York Province. Recognizing the critical need for values education and values development in contemporary higher education and in professional schools he helped spearhead the creation of a grassroots educational effort to discover and implement ways to meet this critical need. Part of the strategy was the establishment of the Center for the Advancement of Values Education (CAVE) at Le Moyne College. He served as its founding director from 1988 - 2003. His most recent book is entitled Compass for Uncharted Lives: A Model for Values Education (Syracuse University Press, 2007). The co-author of Ambitious Dreams: The Values Program at Le Moyne College (Sheed & Ward, 1990), he has given workshops on values education and development for higher education both in the United States and internationally and has served as consultant and board member for a variety of non-profits, educational institutions, and businesses.
