Course Development and Redesign Grant Departmental Grant

We are excited to work with academic departments and centers that wish to infuse leadership and character development into their programming or curriculum. Thanks to our generous grant from the Lilly Endowment, we are able to offer departmental and faculty grants as well as course development workshops to help instructors integrate character into their courses. Some of our partnerships include:

  • Engineering: The Program for Leadership and Character is working with the Engineering faculty to integrate character into the new engineering curriculum, an effort made possible from a grant from the Kern Family Foundation and Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network.  For more information on this project and partnership, click here.
  • Entrepreneurship: With the support from the Kern Family Foundation, the Program has worked with faculty and postdoctoral fellows from the Department of Engineering to integrate character into Wake Forest’s new engineering curriculum. This interdisciplinary team has developed a new Virtues Handbook for faculty, offered faculty development workshops on character, designed new virtue modules for engineering courses, and co-authored two published papers on integrating character education into engineering education.
