Our faculty go above and beyond for our students, so we’re thanking them during Faculty Appreciation Week, February 6-12th.

 

Faculty Footnotes

The story of every accomplished faculty member is one of teaching, research, and outreach. Beyond that are the Faculty Footnotes—the life experiences, special interests, and personal passions—that show how Volunteers are making a difference in the world every day. During Faculty Appreciation week, we introduce you to some of our great faculty stories, footnotes included.

Latest Shout-Out

Shout-out to:Ronald E. Taylor

From:Mirjana Pantic

Dr. Taylor is one of the best professors I have ever had. He is an exceptionally knowledgeable scholar who makes classroom learning an amazing experience. Dr. Taylor helped me gain theoretical knowledge and learn how to incorporate theory in my research. Furthermore, I feel that he can easily detect students’ research philosophy and encourage them to pursue it. He reminded me how much I enjoy examining the work of the Frankfurt School philosophers and helped me situate myself in research. Dr. Taylor has had such a positive impact on my professional and personal development and I am grateful for having him as a professor.
