“Means and Methods: Interviews of CSB and SJU Faculty”

Just as contractors develop means and methods to construct a new building, faculty deploy means and methods of their disciplines to construct new knowledge.  The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University faculty engage in a wide variety of scholarly and creative pursuits that not only keep their teaching up-to-date, but importantly contribute to the common good.   From ethical analysis of public policy to explorations of ways art enriches lives, our faculty continually develop new understanding of our world. This series introduces some of the scholarly work underway at CSB and SJU.
