FOSTERING INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY
A message from President Connie Ledoux Book
Elon is fortunate to have truly exceptional faculty dedicated to excellent teaching, scholarly accomplishment and transformative mentoring. These impressive educators are the heartbeat of Elon’s thriving intellectual community, preparing students to be leaders and changemakers.
“Elon University Faculty: Passionately Curious” celebrates our ethos of academic excellence. I invite you to read the stories behind these faculty members’ personal drive to discover new knowledge and better our world. They are exploring topics such as the future of the internet, the impact of technology on women’s empowerment, the lived experience of adolescents and young adults with HIV and the role of storytelling in expanding our understanding of humanity. All are fiercely committed to working alongside students as co-inquirers and lifelong learners.
The Elon community is well-positioned to solve complex problems in an ever-changing world thanks to the leadership of these talented scholars and their peers. I hope their stories will inspire each of us to continue our own intellectual journey and reach for ever higher levels of knowledge and understanding.
