Stephen Post Is Leaving Case Western Reserve

Stephen Post and The Institute for Research on Unlimited Love will soon have a new home at Stony Brook University in New York. We just got a note from Post about his move from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland to begin an exciting new challenge, which reads in part:

"I am moving on with the spiritual intuition that some would describe as a calling. I will be Director of the new Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics at Stony Brook University in New York. Here I will be able to build a program within an equally vibrant university, and provide a new model for medical education. I will continue to pursue the study of altruism and compassionate love in relation to health and health care in this university platform, as well as attend to the world of the illness experience and of bioethics. The charge for the new center is university wide (very similar to the Harvard University model), so we will be working very intensely with the College of Arts & Sciences in addition to the school of medicine and the health center. We will have the chance to hire absolutely wonderful new faculty. Stony Brook, to its great credit, is also starting a Center for the Study of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Relations, and this I will truly embrace, for what could be a greater threat to human health and well being than religious conflict.
I suppose that the best test for whether anyone has made a good decision is the degree of excitement in their voice when they tell their friends about it. I am excited. I feel that this is a huge opportunity to build something wonderful for the country and the world."

Congratulations, Stephen. We look forward to hearing about all you'll be up to.
