Dr. Michael Lamb, Executive Director of the Program for Leadership and Character and Assistant Professor in the Interdisciplinary Humanities Program, received a teaching award from Wake Forest’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching for his course, “Commencing Character: How Should We Live?” This honor is awarded to teacher-scholars who employ effective and creative teaching methods in the classroom. Based on empirical research, students in Lamb’s course showed statistically significant increases on several virtues of character when compared with a control group. Lamb is currently co-authoring articles with Dr. Elise Dykhuis and Dr. Sara Mendonça to publish the results of this study.

Other recipients of the award in 2020 included Sam Leonard Beck of the School of Business, Eric Ekstrand of the Department of English, Erin Henslee and Kyle Luthy of the Department of Engineering, and Jennifer Rogers of the Department of Counseling.
