Inspired Teaching

Professor in classroom

Ken Carter

Kay Hinton

When Veronique Lin 06OX 08C experienced a tough time while attending Oxford College, Associate Professor of Psychology Ken Carter 87OX 89C reached her with his engaging teaching style.

In appreciation for his support and inspiration, Lin’s mother, Elsie Lin, donated funds to name a space in Oxford’s new Library and Academic Commons for Carter. “He’s just a wonderful teacher, full of energy, and he needed to be recognized,” Lin says. “He needs to know it’s making a difference.”

Carter also is donating a portion of the royalties from his new textbook, Learn Psychology, to be split between the library and Oxford’s new science building.
