In 2009, Dr. Shannon Lawson and a handful of colleagues started Shawnee State’s Festival of Faculty Achievement. The conference is sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Center to showcase faculty research.
It has grown into a yearly event to provide a platform for faculty to share scholarship interests with colleagues, students and the public. During the Festival, faculty members give oral presentations about their current research projects, some in progress and some complete and published. Students, fellow faculty members, administrators, and the general public are invited to attend the Faculty Festival.
