Graham Reside Ph.D.

Executive Director
Cal Turner Program in Moral Leadership for the Professions
Assistant Professor, Vanderbilt University Divinity School

Dr. Reside is the executive director of the Cal Turner Program for Moral Leadership in the Professions, and assistant Professor of Ethics and Society at Vanderbilt University's Divinity School. In addition to his work in leadership development, his interests include ethics, sociology of culture and religion, sociology of the professions and the sociology of emotions. Dr. Reside's research and teaching interests focus on the role of social institutions as vehicles of social goods and schools of moral formation. Through the shaping of our ideas, values and sentiments, the various institutional spheres (including the professions) provide particular moral understandings of the virtuous self and the good society. As the director of the Cal Turner Program, Dr. Reside seeks to facilitate discussions across the various professions about their moral purposes and perspectives and to encourage professionals to consider how they contribute to the common good.
