Faculty Scholarship & Creative Activity

Scholarship and creative work is the intellectual foundation of any academic institution. Faculty at the University of Southern Maine are involved in significant scholarship and creative activity in many ways – through publications in professional and scholarly journals, presentation of papers, review of books and other materials, serving as experts on panels, conference presentations, exhibits, or public readings.

Research Scholarship and Creative Activity Programs

The USM Center for Collaboration and Development sponsors many activities related to scholarship and creative activity, especially those aimed at promoting interdisciplinary and collaboration. These programs, whether scholarly presentations and posters, discussions, exhibits, performances, or book/ poetry readings enable faculty and students to share in intellectual discourse, contribute to the “life of the mind”, and build a community of learners.
