Faculty Scholarly and Creative Works, 2013-2014

While Berea College faculty proudly focus primarily on being and becoming excellent classroom teachers, Berea College faculty and staff are also active intellectuals and scholars within their academic disciplines and professional areas. During the 2013-14 academic year, Berea College faculty and staff published works in university presses and disciplinary journals; they performed and exhibited stunning works of art. Berea College faculty and staff are quintessential teacher/scholars/creators/performers. Below, we highlight and celebrate their achievements.

– Dr. Linda Strong-Leek, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs
