Carol Frances Johnston, Associate Professor Emerita of Theology and Culture, taught environmental theology and ethics at Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis, for 29 years. She has worked for eco-justice for over thirty years, including serving on the original Eco-justice Task Force of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and locally on the board of Growing Places Indy.
