Amsel to Give Annual Hinckley Lecture

OGDEN, Utah – Eric Amsel, the 2006 Hinckley Fellow and Utah Professor of the Year, will deliver the annual Hinckley Lecture Dec. 5 at 1 p.m. in Social Science Building 119.

The Hinckley Lecture Series, which began six years ago, is presented annually by WSU's Hinckley Fellow. The presenter chooses the topic based on personal interests or expertise. Amsel's presentation, "Hypothetical Thinking: Its Nature, Development and Promotion in College," is free to the public.

The Hinckley Fellow is selected through the provost's office based on outstanding teaching, service and scholarship at WSU. Both the award and lecture are made possible through a generous annual gift from the John S. Hinckley Family. Recent Hinckley fellows include Yasmen Simonian (2005, clinical laboratory sciences), Kent Van De Graaff (2004, zoology) and Frank Guliuzza (2003, political science).
