Faculty Record, 2011-2012

Listed below are the publications and presentations of the faculty members in our department for the current academic year. (click here for links to work from previous years)

These contributions reflect the faculty's commitment to professional growth and development, as well as the desire to share with others the results of our individual and collective work. It is hoped that this service to the academic community will further the mission of DeSales University to provide a Catholic education in the tradition of Christian Humanism.
