Posted by Centre News in Academics, News 24 Apr 2014

crounseRanked among the top 12 best faculty in the nation (Princeton Review, 2013), Centre College professors are acclaimed for their quality of teaching. Beyond the classroom, however, Centre faculty members are also leaders within their fields, engaged in their own research, writing and creative pursuits.

At least five times each year, the College holds professional recognition receptions to celebrate these peer-reviewed accomplishments. The most recent event was held Tuesday, April 15, and featured eight faculty members presenting their latest work. During the reception, the group heard from scholars in the disciplines of behavioral neuroscience, anthropology, religion, music, biology, film studies and mathematics.
