Feb. 16, 1998

Baylor University faculty members will discuss a variety of topics, from German U-boats to teacher satisfaction in private and public schools, at the Graduate School's fifth annual Faculty Research Day. The event, which features 37 presentations on the latest scholarly research conducted by Baylor faculty, will run from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Bill Daniel Student Center and the Tidwell Bible Building.

"Faculty Research Day gives the university a chance to emphasize the nature of the research that our faculty members conduct," said Dr. Darden Powers, acting dean of the Graduate School and chair of the department of physics.

"This showcases what our faculty members are doing in basic and applied research and is a way to help the general public understand the importance of the research we are doing at Baylor," adds Dr. Tom Charlton, professor of history and vice provost of research.

Each session will last approximately 45 minutes to an hour. The research presentations include "More Commentary on the Magical Number Seven," by Dr. Henry Walbessor, professor of computer science; "The Perceptions and Attitudes of Adults Toward Piano Study," by Dr. Thelma Cooper, assistant professor of piano; "Alcohol and the Adolescent Brain," by Dr. Jaime L. Diaz-Grandados, assistant professor of psychology and neuroscience; and "Ostrich: An Acceptable Meat Choice Compared to Lean Ground Beef," by Dr. Janelle Walter and Dr. LuAnn Soliah, associate professors of family and consumer science.
