Faculty research & scholarship

The intellectual power and creative vitality of the College of Arts and Sciences reside in our faculty. While students lie at the center of the College’s attention, the work of the College’s faculty makes possible the distinctive education in the liberal arts and sciences that our graduates attain. All of the College’s achievements and aspirations spring in some way from faculty members’ creativity, talent, and dedication in scholarship, teaching, and professional service. Recent faculty research and scholarship projects are listed below.
