Salute to Faculty Scholarship 2015
Once a year the Clark community comes together to celebrate the scholarly publications and creative projects authored by Clark faculty over the previous year. On April 15, 2015, from noon - 2 p.m. at the Grace Conference Room, Higgins University Center, we saluted the faculty achievements detailed below.
This year following the Salute we honored the memory of Norman Apter, Assistant Professor in the History Department, 2011 – 2014. Norm was a kind, generous, and talented member of our faculty and those who knew him, miss him. Please join us at 1:15 pm today on the Alden Quadrangle for a brief tree dedication ceremony in his memory.
