Gilligan joined the foundation in 1998 as its program director for theology, and became its president in 2002. Before joining the Henry Luce Foundation, he served at the Association of Theological Schools, academic dean of the Pontifical College Josephinum, and as teacher and administrator in the Catholic Diocese of Columbus. He received a B.A. from Duke University and a M.A. and Ph.D. in English from the University of Virginia.
