About St John's College

Founded in 1909, St John’s College boasts a lively and diverse mix of students and is like no other Durham college.

Set in a series of beautiful listed buildings in Durham's historic heart, the College enjoys stunning views of the Norman Cathedral and River Wear.St John's is one of the smallest colleges, and is renowned for its welcoming and supportive atmosphere.

St John's has two distinctive yet engaged communities at its heart: a diverse community of undergraduates, postgraduates and academics studying for University degrees in all disciplines, and Cranmer Hall, a thriving Anglican theological college in which people are educated and formed for church leadership.

The College has a degree of independence within the University, both financially and in its governance. Our students study for University degrees alongside members of other colleges, but we have the freedom to do things a little differently.

Virtue at Work Lecture

14th December 2017, 19:00, Leech Hall, St John's College, Geoff Moore

What does it mean to be a virtuous individual? Can managers be virtuous? Can we apply the ideas of virtue to organisations, and if so what implications might that have? Based on his new book, and with examples from organisations and occupations as varied as accounting, architecture, banking, business, churches, circus and orchestras, Geoff Moore will explore ‘virtue at work’. Be prepared to be informed, entertained – and challenged!

“This is a unique book in that Geoff Moore combines an extensive knowledge of both managerial and business literature with an equally profound grasp of virtue ethics and combines the two to profound effect. It is a breakthrough in both management and philosophical studies and opens the space for a constructive reconnection between business and ethics.” Lord Maurice Glasman.

Geoff is Professor of Business Ethics at Durham University Business School and a member of Council of St John’s College.

Copies will be available for purchase on the night at £20 – 33% off the RRP.
