Dr. Charles Hubbard, who directs the Abraham Lincoln Institute for the Study of Leadership and Public Policy, received Lincoln Memorial University’s Houston Award for Excellence in Teaching at the 2011 commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 7. The award is given to faculty members who exhibit “clear, abundant and persistent demonstration of high standards of teaching that contribute to the development of the LMU community.”
Dr. Hubbard teaches courses on the United States, Lincoln, the Cold War, and foreign relations. He has been active in integrating Lincoln studies into LMU’s Ed.D. program, crafting courses that draw on the lessons of Lincoln’s life and policies to build up tomorrow’s emerging leaders and administrators. The inaugural class in this program nominated Dr. Hubbard for the Houston Award, and also received their doctorates at this year’s graduation ceremony.
