Featured as a “spotlight innovator” and speaker at the July 2012 White House Faith-based Social Innovators Conference, where he spoke about bridging the gap between faith-based and secular social entrepreneurship. “Faith-based need not mean faith-bound,” Landres said, “and secular social enterprise need not isolate itself from faith-born creativity.”

Received the 2012 Bank of America Award for Teaching Excellence, the highest teaching honor bestowed by University of North Carolina, Charlotte, which includes a nomination for the University of North Carolina Board of Governors’ Award for Excellence in Teaching, the University of North Carolina system-wide award.
