Lois Einhorn, PhD, Professor of Rhetoric and Communication at the State University of New York at Binghamton, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in English education.
As a torchbearer for the ancient and revered discourse of rhetoric, Dr. Einhorn is charged with teaching both rhetorical foundations and using those speaking skills to achieve amazing things. She leads courses from the junior level up through compassionate and non violent communication, focusing on social action, documentaries, and films to take the public out of their comfort zone. Dr. Einhorn was proud to see one of her students from 1979 at an awards reception, and considers the great discussions she had to be a highlight of her career. She loves where she teaches and what she does, and feels very blessed.
Dr. Einhorn became involved with her profession while attending evening public speaking class with Gerry Tarbar, who was well known and ultimately treated Dr. Einhorn almost like a granddaughter. She was further influenced by her mentor Carroll C. Arnold while earning a master’s degree, and regards him as a real “Patch Adams” who recommended his publishers, Robert Reed Publishers, to her. Dr. Einhorn graduated summa cum laude from Pennsylvania State University, and earned an MA in speech communication, followed by a PhD from Indiana University in Bloomington. She was awarded a number of awards for her inspirational coursework and nonfiction publications, notably the 1992 Edward Hunt Award from the National Speakers Association for her book on Abraham Lincoln and the 2005 Heroine of Forgiveness honor from the World Forgiveness Alliance. Dr. Einhorn was named a full professor with Binghamton in 1979, and continues to teach today.
