Recognizing Faculty Authors

University Celebrates Published Works at Luncheon

To recognize the achievement and hard work of its faculty authors, the university hosted a Wednesday, Feb. 23, luncheon in which those who were published during 2010 and 2011 were honored with certificates of achievement. Deans joined their faculty to hear three of the authors read from their publications.

The recognition luncheon was sponsored by the offices of the President, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Pollak Library and the Faculty Development Center.
