The Malcolm Knowles Chair in Adult Learning—Fielding’s first endowed faculty chair—was presented to Charles N. Seashore, PhD, on January 12, 2010.
The award was made at Fielding Winter Session 2010 before an assembly of more than 200 School of Human & Organizational Development (HOD) students, faculty, and alumni from around the globe.
The thoughtful generosity of Fielding alumni, faculty, and students who donated to the Knowles Chair endowment fund—including former students of Malcolm Knowles—helped make this award possible. Earnings from the endowed fund will be used by Dr. Seashore to engage doctoral students in projects that embody the principles and honor the legacy of Malcolm Knowles, who was a founding HOD faculty member and a renowned scholar in the area of adult learning and social change.
Seashore, a Fielding faculty member in the School of HOD since 1985, is a nationally recognized leader in organizational development, group process, and use of self in coaching and consulting. He is a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Organization Development Network (ODNet) in recognition of his many accomplishments.
