Eastern Illinois University is a community enthusiastically engaged in intellectual exploration. This includes faculty testing the boundaries of knowledge within their disciplines and the boundaries of how to convey that knowledge to their students. It also includes students, both graduate students joining with their faculty mentors in pressing the disciplinary boundaries, and undergraduate students discovering the front edges of the disciplines under the guidance of their instructors. Today we celebrate the full range of such faculty contributions: journal articles, book chapters, monographs, art works, music compositions, performances in all forms, and a host of others. Funded research contributions also are included and span similarly the full range just listed above. New this year is recognition of special contributions to pedagogy using technology – the Hoadley award for innovative and cutting edge contributions in this form.

As always, I invite each participant at today’s event to browse the contributions of your colleagues, ask questions, and celebrate the intellectual vitality of this wonderful university. We have had plenty to lament during the past year, but today is a day to recognize and appreciate the vibrancy of our university and community of scholars. This is tangible evidence of why we went into this career.

Provost Dr. Blair Lord
