2007 has, thus far, been a banner year for scholarship at Sherman College. Publications, works in print or currently accepted are nearly double that of 2006. The Research Department would like to recognize those authors. Included among them are several recent graduates. We encourage our entire faculty and students to join the growing team of published authors, serving the greater cause of enhancing our professional knowledge base (see the following list).
