Sam Gladding

The School of Health and Human Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro recently announced that Sam Gladding (PhD ’77), chair and professor in Wake Forest’s Department of Counseling, has been selected as the recipient of its highest honor, the Distinguished Alumni Award.

“Recognition is always nice but it is humbling as well as gratifying. This honor surprised and pleased me. It is not something I ever expected. I like to think I do what I do because it is helpful to others, betters their lives, and in the process brings me joy.”

The award recognizes persons who have attained national and international stature through their achievements in teaching, scholarship and service.

Gladding is also the author of a new book, “Counseling Theories for Human Services Practitioners.” (Pearson, 2014).
