Campus Memorial Serivce for Dr. John J. Mitchell, Jr.
The College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Health and Medical
Sciences are jointly sponsoring a Memorial Service to honor Dr. John J.
Mitchell, Jr. who served as a faculty member in the College and then in
the School of Health and Medical Services until his sudden death on
October 2, 2012. Dr. Mitchell was a distinguished colleague and
community leader for many years at Seton Hall. From the time of his
initial appointment to Seton Hall in 1977, Dr. Mitchell was a strong and
forceful advocate for social justice and faculty rights. His work as a
bioethicist was valued by his students, colleagues, medical
practitioners, and the many people who were touched by his incisive and
thoughtful judgments on the ethics of good medical care. This service
gives the Seton Hall community and many others the opportunity to
celebrate the life and work of a man who gave unstintingly of himself
for the benefit of the community in incalculable ways.
