“For a teacher education Unit this size, it is remarkable that so many of the scholarly papers withstood the scrutiny of the scholarly review process,” said Dr. Moffett. “Each member of the faculty in the nationally accredited division must produce acceptable, annual scholarly research and these papers reflect those requirements.
