Last week the Scholars Lab hosted the second annual Faculty Publication Celebration! We were able to use the newly finished Packer Forum space on the third floor, conveniently located right next to the Scholars Lab. We would just like to take a minute to say thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible! We are honored to be able to celebrate the publications and accomplishments of our faculty on campus, and we hope to continue this tradition in the years to come! [ 125 more words ]
