Students and Faculty Toast the Year in Scholarship

Published books, academic articles, honors research, performances, podcasts and the exhibition of faculty and student artwork mark the culmination of the academic and creative work completed throughout the year. Although we are unable to gather together in person to celebrate, we share the accomplishments of our faculty and students and invite you to view their work virtually. Congratulations!
