A Virtuous Core Karenna Malavanti, Meredith Palm, Hugh Riley, JoAnn Tsang (Psychology and Neuroscience) The process of education instills and reinforces habits of mind and practice. With instructor intentionality, these habits can be virtuous. The A&S revised core curriculum aims to "inspire moral, intellectual, and spiritual virtues." This year, four faculty received the Core Curriculum Virtues Recognition Award. In this session, these awardees will describe how they incorporated empathy in their course and encourage participants to imagine the role of virtues in their own teaching.
