Teaching Intellectual Virtues Project

As part of the Institute's 5-year anniversary celebration and in collaboration with Dr. Hong Lin of OU's Center for Faculty Excellence, the ISHF will sponsor a mini-conference, four follow-up workshops, stipends for faculty to integrate virtues into new and existing courses, and a two-week workshop for participating faculty, led by Dr. Lin.

These initiatives are funded by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
