A University of Character
Dr. Thomas E. Corts

Transformational Experience
New Samford Provost Brad Creed believes a Samford education can become a life-changing experience, if a student desires. He also believes "loving to learn is basic to good teaching."

46-Year Man
Sigurd Bryan started teaching when Samford was Howard College in East Lake. The religion professor retired in May after 46 years on the faculty. But he's already accepted a part-time post at the school: directing Samford Sunday.

Protecting Intellectual Property
Some "intellectual property," such as ideas and information passed down by word of mouth, is hard to copyright or patent. Cumberland law professor Paul Kuruk will study more effective ways to do this as part of his research this fall as a Fulbright Scholar.

Samford Teaching Legacy
Alabama Teacher of the Year Betsy Rogers '74 always wanted to teach. She credits Samford, where she's earned four degrees, and her grandmother, who attended the school in 1916, for providing expertise and inspiration.
