Visitors browse the published works of PSU faculty during the Faculty Authors Reception.

Each year, Pittsburg State University honors members of the faculty and staff who have published works over the past year. At this year's Faculty Authors Reception on Nov. 3, the university recognized 47 faculty and staff who have had their work published.

The faculty and staff honored came from academic disciplines and offices across campus. Their published works include papers and articles in journals and magazines as well as books.

"One important component of being a great teacher is a thorough knowledge of the subject matter one teaches," said Dr. Lynette Olson, provost and vice president for academic affairs. "At Pittsburg State University, we honor faculty research and writing both because it demonstrates individual expertise in a given subject area and also because it fosters continuing academic growth. When their teachers do research and publish their work, students in the classroom benefit."
