At Wake Forest, we celebrate faculty who are both outstanding teachers and brilliant scholars.

To celebrate our community of inquiry, President Wente invites faculty members to share their contributions and insights with the Wake Forest community by joining her on a “Walk with Wente,” a new video series.

Kevin Jung, PhD

President Wente walks and talks with Kevin Jung, Professor of Theological Ethics and Moral Philosophy, about how his work addresses big questions about finding reality, the meaning of life and how one should live their lives. They discuss how students must learn about moral interdependence and self-deception if they are going to help others and why Jung loves challenging questions from students.
