Dr. Glenn Arbery came to Wyoming Catholic in 2013 primarily to teach in the Humanities track, but he was drawn to the whole curriculum, the excellent faculty, and the strong Catholic character of the College, all of which he hopes to further in his tenure as President.

Born in South Carolina, Dr. Arbery grew up as a Protestant in Middle Georgia. His reading of Flannery O’Connor as a freshman at the University of Georgia began his journey toward the Roman Catholic Church. A convert at 25, he entered the Church at the University of Dallas, where he later took his Ph.D. He has taught literature at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in Merrimack, New Hampshire, the University of Dallas, and Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts, where he held the d’Alzon Chair of Liberal Education. He also served as Director of the Teachers Academy at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture and as an editor at People Newspapers in Dallas, where he won a number of regional and national awards for his writing. He has published two volumes with ISI Books, Why Literature Matters (2001) and The Southern Critics (2010), editor. He is also the editor of The Tragic Abyss (2003) for the Dallas Institute Press and Augustine’s Confessions and Its Influence, forthcoming from St. Augustine Press.

Dr. Arbery and his wife Virginia, who teaches Humanities, Trivium, and Philosophy at Wyoming Catholic, have eight children and sixteen grandchildren, all of whom love to visit Wyoming at every opportunity.
