According to Dr. Stephen Chew, chair of our Department of Psychology, the Annual Conference on Teaching (ACT) is the main conference for the Society for the Teaching of Psychology. At the most recent conference, five of the 27 research papers selected for presentation were from Samford students. The strong record of acceptance is a testimonial to the scholarship of the students and to Dr. Chew’s attention to their work. Congratulations to Joshua Aarons, Kevin Figlewicz, Keke Fletcher, Sarah Pryor, Will Brennan, Ashley Ferguson, Parisa Poorak, Sarah Tarnakow, Jeremy Dale, Ashlyn Ward, Rebecca Womack, Sara Nolin, Mikala Pickens, Katherine M. Wood, and Ellen Pacsi.

The world is better because of Samford’s environment for teaching, learning, and research.
