VWU Faculty Focus, formerly Day One, is a monthly email newsletter celebrating the professional development successes of Virginia Wesleyan faculty and staff. From the publication of books, articles, encyclopedia or dictionary entries, conference participation and performances and shows to grants received, positions and awards in professional organizations, and campus and community presentations, Virginia Wesleyan faculty and staff do incredible work inside and outside the classroom. VWU Faculty Focus keeps the VWU community abreast of one another’s scholarly work.
