Our Impressive, Accomplished Faculty
On Wednesday, Oct. 17, EIU celebrated the creative work, publications and grants of its faculty. At the reception and display of works in the University Ballroom, I was struck by the breadth and depth of our scholarship and how it makes our teaching dynamic for our students. Our faculty members are at EIU because they want to teach and engage our students; that involvement comes both in research and in our small class settings, and it takes place because we value those students' creative work. Supporting our faculty?s creativity is an important way to keep our courses and curricula current, exciting, challenging and meaningful for our students.
