‘Last Lecture’ and Civil Rights Award to WSU Professor
That’s the message Weber State University teacher education professor Forrest Crawford will share when he delivers his “Last Lecture” on Oct. 17 at 1:30 p.m. in the Wattis Business Building Room 206.
The Last Lecture series showcases outstanding WSU professors. Each year the Teaching & Learning Forum accepts nominations for professors who inspire, entertain or challenge their students. One professor is chosen and provided the distinction of giving the lecture of a lifetime — the lecture the professor would give if he or she could never lecture again.
“When students engage in a meaningful way with others who are different, they develop a more authentic appreciation for differences,” Crawford said. “Reverence is much more powerful and lasting than tolerance and helps students become true world citizens.”
