Laurie Zoloth was honored by Northwestern University with an award for teaching excellence. From the Northwestern NewsCenter:
Laurie Zoloth is an outstanding educator with a dedication to teaching and to the classical mission of the University. Primarily an ethicist, her interests range across philosophy, religion, Jewish studies, law, justice theory, bioethics and medical ethics. Her versatility as a scholar and passion as a teacher are evidenced by her appointments as Professor of Medical Humanities and bioethics in the Feinberg School of Medicine, Professor of Religion in the Weinberg College, and with a courtesy appointment in the School of Law. She has introduced new courses in all three schools. In the medical school she focuses on bioethics, research ethics, and medical humanities, attracting students from both the medical and law schools with her course on Bioethics and Law. In Weinberg, her courses address the tension between research in bioethics and medicine and between religious theory and moral philosophy.
Zoloth serves as the director of the Center for Bioethics, Science and Society and as director of the Brady Program in Ethics and Civic Life.
