To “provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace” is the mission of the world-renowned Rotary Club. This mission aligns significantly with the work of the Program for Leadership and Character, which Dr. Michael Lamb, Director of the Program, shared in his address to the Stratford Rotary Club in Winston-Salem on January 30, 2020.

Lamb, who received a Rotary Club scholarship in college, applauded the Rotary Club’s deep commitment to education and to living out its motto of “Service Above Self.” Lamb went on to describe the many ways that the Program for Leadership and Character is striving to promote service and educate leaders of character through the newly formed Leadership and Character Scholars Program, courses such as “Commencing Character: How Should We Live?” and “Leadership and Character in the Professions,” discussion groups for the entire student population, and talks by distinguished speakers.

By presenting to the members of the Rotary Club, diverse in their expertise and experience, the Program continues to engage community partners to promote a culture of character that extends beyond the campus of Wake Forest.
