» Jack H. and Paula A. Hassinger Chair in Education - Culture of Scholarship

The Jack H. and Paula A. Hassinger Chair in Education facilitates a culture of scholarship among faculty and students within the College of Educational Studies. Towards this initiative, the chair identifies and makes available resources to support scholarship and creative activity which includes writing coaches, publishing workshops, conference presentations, introduction of our scholars at national professional organizations, and accessing the expertise of our distinguished faculty associates. Collaborative scholarship where faculty members mentor and co-author with students and each other has been significantly successful. Co-authored articles, book chapters and co-presentations at professional conferences have been the proud result of this collaborative work.

Faculty are also supported when they assume editorship of books, journals or theme issues thus providing positive modeling and access to our students by way of ‘demystifying’ the writing process. The camaraderie built through these relationships has had long-term residual value for individuals and our unit as we purposely resist the norm of individualism within higher education.
