Posted by Centre News in Anthro/Soc, Biology, Computer Science, Economics, History, News, Psychology, Spanish 30 Mar 2016

Crounse HallLifelong 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 a little about their work. The format includes time for informal congratulations and conversation, as well as five-minute presentations from each of the honorees.

The following faculty members were recently recognized for their work in anthropology, biology, computer science, economics, history, psychology and Spanish.
