Regent University Faculty Members Present Research

Regent University's faculty members and their research topics are as diverse as the subject matter they teach. To share their research and unite their interests, Regent's Faculty Senate hosted its second Faculty Research & Scholarship presentations on Friday, September 12.

"Academic excellence is fundamental to Regent's mission, and we look for excellence beyond teaching; we encourage our faculty's research activities and developed this event to help show our support," said Dr. Paul Bonicelli, executive vice president. "It's also valuable for faculty colleagues from Regent's diverse academic disciplines to have these opportunities to learn from each other and to possibly find common research interests for future collaborations."

Dr. Andrew Quicke, chair of the Faculty Senate, also prompted Regent's esteemed faculty members to share their interests and findings, and encouraged his peers to spur conversations about their involvement in projects related to their distinguished fields.

"These presentations have been a dream for the Faculty Senate for two years," said Quicke, professor in the School of Communication & the Arts (COM). "We love each other, but we don't know each other."

Dr. Emilyn Cabanda, associate professor in the School of Business & Leadership (SBL), opened the presentations, sharing findings from her book, Managing Service Productivity Using Data Envelopment Analysis. In the book, Cabanda along with her colleague, Dr. Ali Emrouznejad from Aston Business School, delve into recent developments in service productivity.

Kenneth Ching (pictured), professor in the School of Law, presented his paper "Would Jesus Kill Hitler? Bonhoeffer, Church, and State." In his research, Ching explored Christian life in a pluralistic society.

Dr. William Cox, professor in the School of Education (SOE), presented his paper "Inconclusive Teacher Impact Research—a Biblical Interpretation." Cox's research explored the effects that interpersonal relationships have on student learning.

In April 2014, Dr. Mary Manjikian, associate dean and associate professor in the Robertson School of Government, Dr. Ben Fraser, associate professor in the School of Communication & the Arts, and Dr. Mark Yarhouse, professor in the School of Psychology & Counseling, took part in the Faculty Senate's first round of presentations.
