Wake Forest and the Oxford Character Project have developed an ongoing partnership to support leadership and character development. They co-organized a 2017 conference at Oxford on “Cultivating Virtue in the University,” which brought together leading experts in history, literature, philosophy, theology and the social sciences to explore the role of character development in higher education. The sold-out conference attracted scholars, students and educators from the United States, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Germany, Spain and Argentina.

Wake Forest and the Oxford Character Project are partnering again to co-organize a conference on “The Arts of Leading: Perspectives from the Humanities and Liberal Arts” on Feb. 1-3, 2019 at Wake Forest. The conference will explore how diverse perspectives from classics, history, literature, philosophy, religion, and the visual and performing arts can enrich the theory and practice of leadership. Confirmed speakers include distinguished scholars from Chicago, CUNY, Duke, Harvard, Oxford, Richmond, Stanford, UNC and Wake Forest. To learn more, visit “The Arts of Leading”.
