crounse_fallLifelong learning is a central focus for Centre College’s students and faculty. Professors at the College are innovative, taking risks and bolstering their own development by refining their teaching methods, participating in Faculty Learning Communities, engaging in their own research and translating that enthusiasm into the classroom.

Professors whose work has been recognized through publication, performance or juried exhibits are honored in the Fall and Spring terms during Professional Recognition Receptions. The purpose of these events is to congratulate colleagues on their accomplishments in the area of scholarship and creativity and to hear about their work. The format includes time for congratulations and conversation, as well as five-minute presentations from each of the honorees.

The next Professional Recognition Reception, taking place on Monday, Nov. 28, in the Evans-Lively Room of Old Carnegie, will recognize the following faculty members for their work in biology, chemistry, Chinese, economics, English, environmental studies, mathematics, music, physics, religion and studio art.
