The Class of 1960 Professorship in Ethics Samuel W. Calhoun
The Class of 1960 Professorship in Ethics and The Class of 1960 Endowment for the Institute for Honor combines gifts made in celebration of the 40th and 50th reunions of the class to promote the understanding and practice of honor and honesty as an indispensable element of society. This gift was made by the Class of 1960 in recognition of the importance of the Honor System to Washington and Lee and the impact that its underlying values had on their lives. Its income supports a term professorship benefitting faculty whose teaching and scholarship include ethics, honor, integrity, honesty, and applications of ethical reasoning in addressing contemporary issues and one or more projects related to the professor's scholarship and research interests in these subjects.
