From his undergraduate days and throughout his career, Hicks has embraced residential liberal-arts education. He joined Oxford College from Colgate University, where he served as provost and dean of the faculty. From 1998 to 2012 he was professor of leadership studies and religion at the University of Richmond’s Jepson School of Leadership Studies and the founding director of the university’s Bonner Center for Civic Engagement, whose mission is to promote community-based learning, civic partnerships, and applied research on public issues.  In 2012 the State Council of Higher Education of Virginia awarded him its Outstanding Faculty Award, the commonwealth’s highest honor for faculty members in higher education, given in recognition of superior accomplishment in teaching, research, and public service. Hicks’s scholarship focuses on leadership, religion in politics and the workplace, and the ethical dimensions of economic issues, and he is a frequent commentator in the media on these and other topics. He is the author of four books: Money Enough (Jossey-Bass, 2010); With God on All Sides (Oxford University Press, 2009); Religion and the Workplace (Cambridge University Press, 2003); and Inequality and Christian Ethics (Cambridge University Press, 2000). In addition, he edited, with Thad Williamson, Leadership and Global Justice (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012) and with Mark Valeri, Global Neighbors (Eerdmans, 2008). He is co-editor of the three-volume International Library of Leadership (Edward Elgar, 2006) and the author of numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals. He received an AB degree magna cum laude with honors in economics from Davidson College, an MDiv summa cum laude from Duke University, and MA and PhD degrees in religion from Harvard University. An award-winning teacher and author on ethics, religion, and leadership, Hicks has held visiting faculty positions at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond and at the Harvard Divinity School. He is a former president of the Academy of Religious Leadership and former chair of the Religion and Social Sciences section of the American Academy of Religion.
