About Our People

Jillian Sokso (Art and Design) recently gave a public lecture on her studio practice at the College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The lecture was part of the Frogman’s Print Workshops series, for which Sokso also taught a course in Monotype, and exhibited work at the university’s Weber Gallery. Her work was also recently exhibited in “AIFA: Emerging” at the Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta, and will be shown in another exhibit, “Of Print-bearing Age,” curated by Sarah Pitrus, at the Flatbed Press Gallery in the Crane Arts Building in Philadelphia this fall. 

Tai Harden-Moore (Advancement) authored an article, “Academic Bullying: Higher Education’s Dirty Little Secret,” in the August 16, 2019, issue of Diverse Issues in Higher Education.

Corban Harwood (Mathematics) hosted two faculty workshops this summer (funded through a three-year National Science Foundation grant), from which more than 25 articles have been published by the 50 participating mathematics faculty from across the country. In alignment with the grant’s goals, these publications guide interdisciplinary student investigations and inquiry-based curriculum development in support of improving STEM education. Corban also recently presented “Mathematics as a Language of Creation” at the adult Sunday school class at Newberg First Presbyterian Church.

Terry Huffman (Education) published a book, An Appalachian School in Coal Country: Facing the Challenges of a Changing Region, through Lexington Books. In it, Terry examines the struggles and triumphs of an elementary school in one of the poorest counties in the United States. Despite economic crisis in the county, Creekside Elementary School is achieving unprecedented academic success. The book explores the objectives, goals and challenges of the educators of Creekside Elementary and the ways in which they are able to serve the needs of their students and community.
