  • Astronomy professor Dr. Peter Frinchaboy has completed his fourth year conducting an NSF-funded project to create and guide research experiences for undergraduates. Students are selected from Texas and other states to attend the summer program and complete a research project under his guidance.
  • Dr. Suki John, School for Classical & Contemporary Dance, continues her collaboration with Malpaso Cuban Dance Troupe. The University supported Dr. John and TCU music professor Dr. Till Meyn’s collaborative work, Wall of Babel, in Cuba in 2013, and provided funding for Dr. John’s instructional development work again last year.
  • Drs. Linda Hughes and Sarah Robbins have collaborated on a collection of essays and articles that will be important resources for Anglo-American literature professors at universities around the world. Their work provides a website, scholarly accounts and classroom experiences to help faculty bring the study of 19th-century literature alive in a 21st-century context.
  • Adam Fung, School of Art faculty, was selected for the June 2016 Arctic Circle Artist Residency, a prestigious international program for artists, scientists, innovators and educators to collaborate and engage with timely issues. Fung’s participation in the two-week expedition was supported by funding from TCU’s Research and Creative Activity Fund. His project furthers his research activities to explore inaccessible, globally relevant sites. An upcoming lm about the expedition will be featured at museums, universities, exhibitions and galleries.
  • Under the watchful eye and hand of curator Dr. Rhiannon Mayne, the Monnig Meteorite Gallery and Collection hosts hundreds of school classes and visitors each year. Students, faculty and visiting researchers are able to work with the collection’s rare and unique specimens with access that is the envy of even Smithsonian visitor scientists.
