Faculty Scholars

The faculty here at SJU work hard every year to research, write and publish on important topics across the disciplines.  Come and join us in congratulating them on the fruits of their labors at our Faculty Scholars event, and the opening of the Faculty Scholars exhibit, tomorrow from 3-5 p.m. on the second floor of the Drexel Library.    An opening by President Father Lannon and the Provost, Dr. Brice Wachterhauser, will be followed by presentations from four faculty members who will talk about the projects they’ve worked on and the things that they’ve published in 2008.   The exhibit and presentations will feature not only journal articles and books, but also creative works or projects that professors have been apart of.   Come get the scoop on what your professors do outside of the classroom!

The program will include presentations by:

Susan Fenton, Assistant Professor, Photography

John Neiva, Assistant Professor, International Business

Thomas Donahue, Professor, Foreign Language and Literature

Melissa Goldthwaite, Associate Professor, English
