Dr. Christopher P. EvansDean, School of Arts and Sciences

​In June 2016 Chris Evans was appointed dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, the largest school in the university. Rooted in the Catholic liberal arts tradition, the school offers undergraduate and graduate degrees and consists of departments, programs, and centers served by distinguished faculty committed to research, excellent teaching, and student success. Previously, Dr. Evans served as chair of the Theology Department (2011–2016) and associate dean of Arts and Sciences (2014–2016). He joined UST in 2007 as a faculty member in the Theology Department where he taught a core course in Catholic theology and a number of upper-division courses in historical and systematic theology.

His research focuses on early scholastic and monastic theology, and he especially enjoys working with unpublished manuscript materials. Some of his publications include Simon of Tournai: Questions on the Incarnation (PIMS, forthcoming 2017), Hildegardis Bingensis opera minora: Vita sancti Ruperti confessoris, Vita sancti Dysibodi episcopi, et Solutiones questionum xxxviii (Brepols, 2016), and Radulphus Ardens: The Questions on the Sacraments (PIMS, 2010). Currently, he is working on Latin critical editions of Robert of Melun’s Sententie II and Richard of St. Victor’s Tractatus super quosdam psalmos. He is also a member of the editorial board for Victorine Texts in English Translation (Brepols) and a member of the Alexander of Hales Project (Peeters) working to make the entirety of Alexander’s Glossa available in English translation.

He and his wife Elizabeth live in Houston with their four children.
