Research, publication, and other scholarly activities are valued at Berry College with the expectation that they will contribute to the distinctive liberal-arts education which the faculty provide for their students. We are pleased then to provide this platform for informing visitors to our web site of the important and exciting research that can be accomplished by faculty who serve at a "teaching" institution where the greater emphasis is on the intellectual needs of its students.
