Samford University faculty members Lee Farquhar, assistant professor of journalism and mass communication, and Tom Woolley, professor of statistics in the Brock School of Business, were chosen to attend the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) Faculty Publishing Workshop June 6-9.
The Faculty Publishing Workshop, held at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, provided participants with information on publishing a book. The participants expanded upon their book ideas by creating a successful prospectus over the four-day period with the help of experts and peer reviews.
