You're Invited to a Scholarship Celebration on March 28!

All students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend a Celebration of Achievements in Scholarship on Wednesday, March 28, from 11:00am to 1:00pm in the library.  Learn more about your professors’ impressive research and creative talents at this open-house showcase!

At 11:00am, Dr. April Kelly-Woessner, Professor of Political Science and Chair of the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Legal Studies, will deliver a lecture as the inaugural recipient of the Ranck Prize in Research Excellence.  Dr. Kelly-Woessner’s work centers on political socialization of college students, lack of conservatives in higher education, and rising political intolerance among young people.  A reception will follow the award presentation and lecture.

From 12:00pm to 1:00pm, join the campus in celebration of your professors’ recent scholarship!  Chat with faculty and instructional staff about their work; and view a physical display of their books, articles, conference presentations, and more.  Hope to see you at the party!
