This month long event was designed to showcase the outstanding achievements of our faculty and students that make us a "Student Centered Research Institution." The College of Arts & Sciences has played a major role in the development of Western Michigan University as a research institution. With about half of the faculty in the University, ore than 70% of the federal research funding is attributable to A&S researchers. Currently A&S faculty are supported by more than $10 million per year in external funding. But research funding alone does not indicate the breadth of research and creative activities in the College. During the month of April, the College of Arts and Sciences is proud to recognize some of its best and brightest. They are valuable assets to the College, to the University, and to the community at large.
