The Spirit of Research and Creativity at WKU

The WKU Scholar was published by the Office of Sponsored Programs as a means of informing the public about scholarship and creative activities taking place on campus. It was produced by the WKU Office of Public Affairs with assistance from WKU Libraries and the WKU Office of Research. The last publication of the WKU Scholar was in the Fall of 2010. Happy reading.
