About Sam Gladding:
Professor Sam Gladding has a B.A. in history and an M.A. in counseling from Wake Forest University, a masters in religion from Yale University, and a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) in human development and family studies. Gladding has taught, researched and written about counseling for more than 30 years. He joined the Wake Forest faculty in 1990 as an assistant to then-President Thomas K. Hearn Jr., and later served as the University’s associate provost before being named chair of the new counseling department in 1996. Since then, he has taught undergraduate classes on the Creative Arts and Counseling and graduate courses on family counseling.
Except for the removal of Wake Forest College to Winston-Salem, there has never been a more exciting or impactful time in the history of the institution than during the 22 years of the Hearn administration (1983-2005). In this era, Wake Forest went from a strong regional, Baptist-affiliated university to a top 30 national, independent, institution of higher education.
