On April 19 University faculty gathered at the College at Florham to celebrate achievements in the world of publishing.

In his introductory letter to the program's brochure, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Willard Gingerich noted, "It is of the greatest importance that we remain aware of and attuned to one another as a community of scholars, that we each have a clear vision of our collective intellectual accomplishments. To that end this event is dedicated."
