Why Teach? In Defense of a Real Education

Mark Edmundson

Thursday, May 15, 2014
Frick Center, Founders Lounge
7:00 PM

Mark Edmundson teaches English at the University of Virginia. For him, teaching is a vital endeavor in which the very souls of his students are at stake. In his recent book, Why Teach?, Edmunson "reminds us of the power strong teachers have to make students rethink who they are and who they might become," says Michael S. Roth, president of Wesleyan University, in a New York Times review. "This is what a real education is all about."

CPDU credits will be available for educators who attend this event.
