Reading Group: Cultivating Virtue in the University

Along with knowledge and skills, many educators are now emphasizing the importance of character in preparing a new generation to engage the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century. What is the role of colleges and universities in educating the character of students? Should universities even attempt to cultivate virtue? If so, how can they do so effectively in a pluralistic context? Cultivating Virtue in the University seeks to answer these questions by gathering diverse perspectives on character education from some of the world's leading scholars, including Wake Forest colleagues.
Join us for a critical debate about the possibilities and limits of character education in the university while considering theoretical and practical perspectives on what such education could look like. 
This book group will meet four times this semester (9/6, 9/27, 10/18 & 11/15) from 10-11am in ZSR 665 (Faculty Commons Classroom in ZSR Wilson Wing). We will provide the book for the first 12 registrants. These discussions are very popular so we ask that you register only if you are available to attend all sessions.
