Loy H. Witherspoon is professor emeritus of Philosophy and Religious Studies at UNC Charlotte. He was the founding chair of the Department of Religious Studies (1964), served as president of the UNC Charlotte faculty, as founder and director of the campus officer of Religious Affairs, and as faculty advisor to the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. The Loy H. Witherspoon Lectures in Religious Studies were established at UNC Charlotte in 1984 to honor him for his tenure of distinguished service. He retired in 1994 after 30 years of service to UNC Charlotte and its predecessor, Charlotte College. Witherspoon is also an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church. He earned his bachelor and divinity degrees from Duke University and his doctorate from Boston University.
