Beyond the classroom, however, Centre professors 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 the faculty’s peer-reviewed accomplishments. The most recent event was held Wednesday, September 24, in the Evans-Lively Room of Old Carnegie, and featured five faculty members presenting their latest work. During the reception, the group heard from scholars in the disciplines of history, psychology, religion and art.
