Student Work

The Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College likes to celebrate students’ hard work and achievements. In an effort to showcase what our students have done during their doctoral studies, TCDC has created an archive of student work. This includes articles students have authored, presentations they have presented, grants they have been awarded, as well as other projects they have completed while attending MLFTC.

Another important purpose for this archive is to provide examples of different types of writing that doctoral students will encounter in grad school. We all know how helpful it can be to have a model when working with a format we have never tried to write before.

Please, consider this archive your resource for successful writing models. Everything that you find her has been published, presented, and/or awarded. Don’t see what you are looking for? Let us know and we will do our best to find examples of students’ work that meets your needs.
