Publications: (* = undergraduate students): I proscribe to the Boyer Model of the Professoriate1. Here I the meaning of his categories in my terms. Discovery (D) — This category covers contributions to the stock of human knowledge and at the same time contributing to the intellectual climate of one's own institution. (* = Undergraduate students). Integration (I) — A category of discovery that gives new meaning to isolated facts. Application (A) — This category covers service and activities directed to one's special fields of knowledge, included to the infrastructure of one’s discipline; service to Ripon College is documented in my annual Addendum to Vitae. Teaching (T) — While teaching is a dynamic endeavor involving both educating and exciting students to become informed citizens and, for those who go on to graduate education, to become the future scholars, it is more than just the local sage on the stage; it involves sharing ones ideas with the wider world, both academic and non-academic.
