Robert J. Sternberg

Rethinking Admissions conference may have officially ended on Thursday, April 16th, but the conversation about college admissions is far from over. Tomorrow, April 21, Wake Forest will host Robert J. Sternberg, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Tufts University. Dr. Sternberg is a professor of psychology and adjunct professor of education and is considered the “godfather of testing,” with more than 30 years in the field.

The central focus of his research is intelligence, creativity, wisdom, and leadership. He’ll be talking about how Tufts came up with an admissions process that takes into consideration not only academic credentials, but creativity and problem-solving skills as well. The lecture is free and open to the public at 11 a.m. in Pugh Auditorium at Benson University Center. If you can’t make it, be sure to check out this blog for updates.
