When Colgate launched its Third-Century Plan
in May of this year, the Institution immediately identified the ongoing support and recruitment of top-tier faculty members as an element vital for future success. Through their research, Colgate professors provide the intellectual foundation upon which this academic community’s reputation will continue to rise.
In the autumn edition of Colgate Research, we follow a few of these individuals through the Social Sciences, Sociology and Anthropology, Geology, Caribbean and Latin American Literature, and Geography. Together, we visit the shrines of the Middle East, the forests of Arctic Russia, and the sea floor along the Alaska Peninsula. In a set of stories that sample the work of Colgate scholars, we demonstrate the truth that guides our long-term plans for a remarkable third century.
