Hannah Newman, one of our 2015 graduates from the Department of Human Development and Family Science, was notified a few days ago that her paper, “The Relationship Between Parental Conflict Tactics and Sibling Contact Tactics,” received the Outstanding Undergraduate Research Paper Award from the National Council on Family Relations Affiliate Council, a noteworthy accomplishment.  According to Dr. Kristie Chandler, department chair, a Samford graduate has received this national award four years in a row.

The world is better because Samford students and faculty are committed to high standards of scholarship.
