At Bushnell University, the faculty lead by example in their scholarly activities, and encourage students to reach for scholarly excellence through research, presentations, and publishing papers.
The best teachers in the world are those who are not only life-long learners, but instill this love for learning in their students.
Our faculty are continually engaged in scholarly research activities and professional development, attending conferences and learning while they teach. You can see it in their interactions with students, and you can hear it in their words of encouragement, advice, and mentorship.

In these reports, you will discover examples of current faculty and student publications, speaking engagements, community and church service, and many other professional activities.
