Alumni College Connects Past And Present
Alumni and friends of the class of 1950 enjoyed a rare opportunity during their 60th reunion, June 10- 12, to engage with 11 recipients of the Alumni Association Award for Distinguished Teaching, the top faculty prize at Wittenberg, as part of Alumni College 2010. The 19 class members traveled from a round the country to celebrate their alma mater and its academic environment during the three-day event themed “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things.”
From joint sessions on subjects such as “Psychology and Economics Inter twined” and “Educational Priorities in the 21st Century” to talks on politics, international relations and G.F. Handel, alumni participants had the opportunity to experience the liberal arts approach to education just as they had during their years on campus. Award-winning faculty participating included: Josephine Wilson, Keil Professor of Psychology; David Wishart, professor of economics; Charles Chatfield, professor emeritus of history; George Hudson, professor of political science; Richard Flickinger, professor emeritus of political science; Cynthia Behrman, professor emeritus of history; William Buscemi, professor emeritus of political science; Scott Rosenberg, associate professor of history; Claudia Cornett, professor emeritus of Education; Virginia Hibbett Lucas ’53, professor emeritus of education, and Trudy Faber, professor of music.
