Robert Kloska MA ’06

MA Philosophy

Robert Kloska MA ’06 (“Bobby” to friends and family) landed at Franciscan University in an unconventional way. He was teaching at Brophy College Prep in Phoenix and knew he wanted to earn a master’s degree in philosophy to pair with his bachelor’s in accounting from the University of Notre Dame, but he wasn’t sure where.

He felt led to write to three authors for their opinion. Only Dr. Peter Kreeft, a philosophy professor at Boston College (and Franciscan University’s 2022 commencement speaker), replied. He endorsed Franciscan University.

So, Bobby headed to Steubenville, studying on campus from 1996 to 1997 and finishing his degree in 2006. Meanwhile, he taught philosophy courses at Holy Cross College in Notre Dame, Indiana, for 12 years, founded its campus ministry program, and then served 5 years as vice president for Mission Advancement.
