The TCU Teacher-Scholar Model

All TCU faculty, including the Bob Schieffer College of Communication faculty, are teacher-scholars. To quote the TCU Office of Research, it’s not “teacher or scholar but more like ‘teacher as scholar’ and ‘scholar as teacher.'” When not teaching, our faculty devote their time to research and creative projects. That scholarship comes back to the classroom, ensuring Schieffer students are always at the forefront of learning.


Research and Creative Festival

The Schieffer College hosts an annual Research & Creative Festival each April on the first floor of Moudy South. Guests are invited to visit with undergraduate and graduate students to learn about their research and creative projects and videos. Awards are given for the top undergraduate submission, the top graduate submission, people’s choice and the submission that best illustrates the festival’s theme.
