Faculty Achievements 2008-2009
I am delighted to present the 2008-2009 collection of "Faculty Achievements in Scholarship and Service" at Marymount Manhattan College. This annual publication celebrates the scholarly achievements and service contributions of our full-time faculty. Scholarship is the creation and dissemination of new knowledge or creative work. The MMC faculty make significant contributions to their fields and often bring our students with them into the community of scholars.
Contributions to Marymount Manhattan College through service are vital to the achievement of our institutional mission. The faculty sponsor student organizations, chair and serve on standing and ad-hoc committees, collaborate on college-wide strategic initiatives, and serve on peer review and search committees. These contributions enhance the College immeasurably.
I am enormously proud of the faculty at Marymount Manhattan College and their significant achievements in teaching, scholarship and service. MMC offers students an opportunity to study with faculty who are passionate teachers, active scholars, and devoted members of the academy. Congratulations to each of the faculty members recognized in this publication.
