Joel Cunningham, the vice-chancellor and president emeritus, and professor of Mathematics
at Sewanee, the University of the South, will speak at King on Monday, Sept. 24 at
9:15 a.m. in Memorial Chapel as part of the 2012-2013 Buechner Institute Lecture Series.
Given his experience in the leadership of the University of the South, Joel Cunningham
is certainly in a position to speak to the trials, challenges, and joys that circle
in the educational arena these days,” said Dr. Dale Brown, director of the Buechner
Institute and chair of the English department at King. “A member of the Advisory
Board of the Buechner Institute, Dr. Cunningham will address both faculty and student
groups while at King. It has taken several years to work out this visit, so we will
be quite happy to see him here at last.”
Cunningham’s term as university president at Sewanee furthered the school’s long tradition
of outstanding teaching and scholarship in its College of Arts and Sciences and its
School of Theology. Previously, Cunningham taught mathematics at the University of
Kentucky, was dean of continuing education at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga,
and president of Susquehanna University.
Cunningham graduated summa cum laude from the University of Chattanooga in 1965 with majors in mathematics and psychology.
He completed his master’s and doctoral degrees in mathematics at the University of
Oregon in 1967 and 1969.
Dr. Joel Cunningham’s lecture will be held in King’s Memorial Chapel on Wednesday,
Sept. 24 at 9:15 a.m. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dale Brown
