Jeanne Buckeye, PhD, is an associate professor in the Department of Ethics and Business Law at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business. Her primary teaching is in business ethics, but also includes the Great Books course for MBA students and the Faith and the Management Profession course at the undergraduate level.

Buckeye’s research interests lie primarily in examining how faith and commitment to faith-based principles affect managerial practice. She is a co-author, with John Gallagher, of Structures of Grace: Business Practices of the Economy of Communion, 2014. The book summarizes their multi-year study of 14 North American enterprises participating in the Economy of Communion (EOC). EOC is an international ecclesial and ecumenical association of more than 850 businesses with a shared philosophy that includes local community engagement, high quality standards, good employment practices, and a “culture of giving” manifest in a commitment to distribute a portion of their profits with the poor. Buckeye is also a co-author, with Michael Naughton, Kenneth Goodpaster and T. Dean Maines, of the book, Respect in Action: Applying Subsidiarity in Business, 2015.

Buckeye earned her MBA and PhD in management at the University of Minnesota. Her prior work experience is primarily in the world of nonprofit management. Her career at St. Thomas includes serving in several administrative roles including, most recently, interim director of the John A. Ryan Institute for Catholic Social Thought and earlier, associate dean of graduate business programs and acting dean of the college of business. Her service outside St. Thomas includes work on nonprofit boards, parish trustee and participation in committees for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
