BSC’s professors are up to?
Check out the second edition of the Faculty Scholarship guide, just
released this fall and available on campus. The guide updates the
first edition, which was published in 2004, and adds an incredible 80
pages of accomplishments, including books and articles, scientific
discoveries, creative endeavors, and award-winning performances.
As BSC Archivist Guy Hubbs writes in the forward, “The members
of our faculty see teaching and research as two ways of approaching
the same thing: learning.”
