Ethan Sullivan is the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Curriculum in the Carroll School of Management. In this role since 2008, he is responsible for providing strategic direction and integration of curricular initiatives in the undergraduate program, including the Portico Program, in which he teaches two sections per year. In addition to working in the Carroll School, Sullivan has also worked in First Year Experience at Boston College, as well as at Harvard University, Boston University, and New York University. Prior to entering academia, he was a brewer of craft beers in the Pacific Northwest. Dean Sullivan received his Ph.D. from Boston College and his M.A. from New York University. He was an English and Philosophy major as an undergraduate at Boston College and these majors greatly contributed to his love of reading.

Ethan lives in Needham, MA with his wife, Jennifer, and their four children. He is very involved in coordinating and coaching youth sports in Needham, and trying not to tear an Achilles while playing soccer, hockey, basketball, lacrosse, and baseball with his active children and their teammates. His work as a parent and coach intertwines beautifully with his teaching, all roles informing and enhancing each other. Teaching in Capstone is a microcosm of this pursuit—the pursuit for meaning and a life well-lived.
