"Faculty"? Yeah, that should annoy a few people...



Celebration of Faculty Creative Works from 2007-2008

The Office of the Provost and the UT Arlington Library announce the first annual exhibit to highlight recent books, art exhibit catalogs, music recordings and patents of the UT Arlington faculty and staff. Provost Donald R. Bobbitt and Dean of the Library Gerald Saxon will toast all exhibition participants at a reception honoring these individuals.

The depth and breadth of scholarship and creativity at UT Arlington is a great source of pride on campus and beyond. The exhibit will open with a faculty and staff reception on Tuesday, April 14, from 5 – 6:30pm in the sixth floor atrium of Central Library.

For several years the library has sponsored an annual lecture series called "Focus on Faculty," featuring a half-dozen talks a year by award-winning faculty. This exhibit takes it to the next level and features more than 80 entries, recognizing works completed in the 2007-2008 academic year.

A booklet cataloging each entry will be available, and the exhibit will remain in place through May 31, 2009. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Hours of the Central Library sixth floor atrium are Monday, 8am to 7pm and Tuesday through Saturday, 8am to 5pm.



(Of all the recognition I've received for the book, the ones at my old university mean the most to me, no doubt because of my less-than-stellar performance as a student. That's right, kids. Stay in school. It's more fun than actual work.)

So are you going to be there? I was hoping to send my step-dad, who is a teacher there, to get a book signed for me?

I'll be there for sure. Julie and Schuyler probably won't be, just because it's pretty hard to get from Plano to Arlington in the space of time we'd have after Schuyler gets out of school to the beginning of the reception.

We'll let her miss school for something like the speech language conferences, where there's an obvious educational and developmental benefit for her. Watching Daddy get petted and drink complemetary alcohol is another story.

Well done, Rob. (Are you an alumnus as well as staff?)

Did this in fact annoy a few people?

In my time (I used to be a univ faculty) the annoyance was when an assistant or associate professor was referred to as "professor." What a faux paus!!!! The only place I've ever known where the pecking order/food chain was so carefully guarded........
