Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Institute for Writing Studies and the University Libraries, in conjunction with the Office of the Provost and the Center for Teaching and Learning, we welcome you to the 11th annual faculty book reception. These books, published since March 2007, are a testament to the exciting creativity of our University faculty and their dedication to scholarly inquiry.  Faculty scholarship is the intellectual core of our institution.

Our mission statement opens by emphasizing a commitment to scholarly research, imaginative methodology, rigorous standards and the innovative application of knowledge. All of these are evident in the wave of books published every year by an
exceptional faculty.

The work of teaching is directly connected to scholarship; innovative research spills back into the classroom and our students further inspire us to pursue the challenging work of scholarly engagement. Such a commitment is evident throughout the
University, as this year’s authors range from faculty teaching in the core to those working with graduate students.

Ours is a thriving community of active authors and scholars who labor throughout the year to bring the vision of their research to students, colleagues and the wider public. Today we honor the accomplishments of these dedicated faculty and their role in
enhancing the reputation of the University.
