Higher Education Notebook: Nobel Peace Prize winner to speak at WFU

Muhammad Yunus, an economist who won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for founding the global microfinance movement, will discuss his life’s work and his vision for “A World of Zero Poverty on Dec. 6 at Wake Forest University.

Yunus will give the inaugural Noesis Lecture at 4 p.m. in Wait Chapel. The event is free and open to the public.

Often called the “banker of the poor” and the father of social business, Yunus founded the Grameen Bank as a nonprofit in Bangladesh to provide small, collateral-free loans to the poor, mostly women, to start their own businesses. The bank became a model for combating poverty through micro-lending.

“We are incredibly excited to launch the Noesis Lecture Series by bringing a Nobel laureate like Professor Yunus to Wake Forest,” said Adam Hyde, assistant director of the Eudaimonia Institute.
