w rk Pathfinders Driving the Art of Intellectual Discovery
2014 Research Collaboration Creativity at Bradley University
From the President
Bradley University has a national reputation for providing students with transformative learning opportunities in and outside of the classroom. As a mid-sized university making an impact in a variety of research arenas, we take immense pride in the spirit of collaboration practiced daily across all academic units. Our dynamic faculty are leaders, mentors, and collaborators, recognized for their excellence in teaching and dedication to student achievement. In this issue of Bradley Works, we spotlight several of our faculty members’ recent professional pursuits, which speak to the level of scholarship, research, innovation, and creativity that takes place every day on our campus. These are just a sampling of the myriad opportunities for discovery and growth occurring in our five academic colleges and The Graduate School: Foster College of Business: Professionals in our Executive MBA program are gaining vital insights and skills for improving their workplace cultures by learning from a professor who has studied the best practices at a wide range of notable organizations. Her latest book is a guide for employers seeking to build trust and camaraderie within their companies. Slane College of Communications and Fine Arts: A professor in the art department has received worldwide accolades for a unique photography collection of female hunters titled The Modern Day Diana. College of Education and Health Sciences: Students and a professor in Bradley’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy program studied angular velocity to determine the safest, most effective techniques for use in the workout regimen known as “tire flipping.” They used video and motion analysis software to complete their work. Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology: An electrical and computer engineering professor who has survived
cancer is researching methods of improving the resolution of ultrasound images to increase doctors’ diagnostic capabilities. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Student researchers collaborating with a biology professor on stem cell research recently played a role in two significant contributions to the field of regenerative medicine. Other research from the college you will read about includes a search for ways to identify preschool-age children at risk for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, a look into adolescents with ADHD who may be especially vulnerable to substance abuse, and the collaboration between a psychology professor and undergraduate researchers at our new Stress, Emotion, and Alcohol Laboratory.
The Robert and Carolyn Turner School of Entrepreneurship and Innovation — the first of its kind in the nation established as a standalone academic unit — opened in fall 2012 and offers students from all disciplines the tools they need to become tomorrow’s savvy business leaders. Students from our business college and our engineering college now work together with faculty mentors on convergence projects to solve real-world problems for diverse clients. In the process, they enhance the depth of their knowledge, hone their leadership skills, and gain experiential opportunities employers value. Our University prides itself on the intelligent, innovative men and women who propel discovery while instilling a passion for learning in their students. Together, they inspire the world and further Bradley’s commitment to producing the next generation of gifted leaders and entrepreneurs.

Speech Team Best in Nation ABOVE: Bradley University’s speech team boasts 41 national championships — a record unmatched by any other forensics or academic program in the nation.
Bradley University’s speech team claimed its 40th and 41st national championships since 1978 after winning both the National Forensics Association (NFA) and the American Forensics Association (AFA) tournaments last spring. It was the second consecutive year the most successful speech team in the nation won both championships. At the NFA tournament in Huntington, W.Va., junior Kaybee Brown was crowned the individual sweepstakes champion. At the AFA tournament in Hutchison, Kan., senior Jacoby Cochran was named individual champion.
Bradley Ranks Among Top Universities Bradley was recognized as a top university in 2013 by U.S.News & World Report, The Princeton Review, and other publications and websites. In America’s Best Colleges 2014, U.S.News & World Report ranked Bradley fifth among Midwest colleges and universities that provide a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs. The report also ranked Bradley as seventh in the “Best Value” category, and the Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology continued to receive national
recognition as one of the best undergraduate engineering programs in the country. Bradley was included in The Princeton Review’s The Best 378 Colleges. Only 15 percent of all four-year colleges in the U.S. receive this distinction. The publication praised Bradley’s extensive academic resources, personal attention to students and ideal class sizes. The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine also ranked Bradley’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program among the top 20 in the nation. For the second consecutive year, The Princeton Review named the University one of the “Top Undergraduate Schools to Study Video Game Design.” Additionally,

Former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, HON ’11 has been named the first Honorary Senior Distinguished Fellow for the Institute for Principled Leadership in Public Service (IPL) at Bradley. Through his appointment, LaHood will participate in national public policy symposiums on Bradley’s campus and guest lecture in University classrooms. LaHood is the first Bradley alumnus to serve in a presidential cabinet, a position he held from 2009 to his retirement in 2013. The first Republican in the Obama cabinet who served in elective office, he was a U.S. representative from Illinois from 1994 to 2008. IPL promotes a return to statesmanship at all levels of government. Its goal is to become a Midwestern think tank advocating for a bipartisan leadership approach to resolve America’s most pressing problems.
Fulbright Recognition The U.S. Department of State ranked Bradley sixth nationally among universities of its type for producing the most Fulbright students in 2013–14. Receiving Fulbrights were Julie Mohedano, Anna Treesara, and Nausheen Farishta, who are teaching English in Brazil, Thailand and Spain, respectively. Eleven current Bradley faculty members have been named Fulbright Scholars,
including Dr. Cecile Arquette, associate professor of teacher education. She is teaching English as a foreign language at the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaiso in Chile in 2014. The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. Since its inception in 1946, the program has provided more than 325,000 participants with the opportunity to study, teach, conduct research, exchange ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to shared concerns.

Bradley Works 2014
Commemorating the Civil Rights Movement Leaders who have worked for racial equality and women’s rights, and against human trafficking have been visiting Bradley’s campus during the 2013–14 academic year as the University pays tribute to the civil rights movement. Focused on the campus theme “Standing Together,” the yearlong celebration marks the impressive strides made 50 years ago with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s powerful “I Have A Dream” speech, delivered in Washington, D.C., on August 28, 1963, and the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. As people throughout the nation observe these milestones, Bradley is among the many looking to the past for inspiration to help shape the future. From the University’s beginning in 1897, it maintained an open admission policy that provided for men and women, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic level or sexual
Trade Expert Earns International Award Bradley University’s James Foley, left middle, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Trade Training Organizations. The honor recognizes his leadership and contributions to the industry. Foley is director of operations at the Turner Center for Entrepreneurship. He coordinates a training and counseling program in international business planning, marketing, logistics, and export finance through the University’s International Trade Center. Working with the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs, he assists companies with trade-related expansion and training.
Postcards from Home Recognized Dr. Bob Jacobs, left bottom, professor of communication and director of Bradley’s John C.

orientation. At its very roots, founder Lydia Moss Bradley and her husband, Tobias, sought to live in a “free” state. Peoria was a natural choice. In 1854, Abraham Lincoln gave one of his first major public speeches against the extension of slavery in front of the Peoria County Courthouse. Bradley’s observance featured a screening of To Kill A Mockingbird, a theater department production of Clybourne Park, a re-enactment of civil rights trials and more. In collaboration with Peoria Reads, students, faculty, and staff were encouraged to read Warriors Don’t Cry, a biography about the Little Rock Nine and the fight to desegregate Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., in 1957. Dr. Terrence Roberts, who was among the African American students known as the Little Rock Nine, visited campus to share his experiences on the front lines of desegregation and discussed its impact on today’s society. Other guest lecturers included Lilly Ledbetter, who fought for equal pay for women at Goodyear; Dr. Bernice Sandler, considered the “Godmother of Title IX,” who discussed how women are treated differently in unnoticed ways; and Janet Drake, senior assistant attorney general for the Colorado Department of Law, whose focus is raising awareness about human trafficking. A panel discussion about feminist Betty Friedan, HON ’91 and a lecture about civil rights leader Bayard Rustin also were held. The celebration will culminate in spring 2014 with an event featuring U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a member of King’s inner circle.
Deschanel: TLC; Olympics: Steve Tannock
Historian and Abolitionist Scholar Featured on National TV When cable channel TLC needed an authority on the abolitionist movement for an episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, executives turned to Dr. Stacey Robertson, Bradley’s Oglesby Professor of American Heritage and interim dean for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Robertson was among four experts on the August 13 episode of the series, which delved into the ancestry of actress and singer Zooey Deschanel. The show’s research team traced Deschanel’s ancestry to a 19th century woman involved in the abolitionist movement, an area of concentration for
Robertson for the past 25 years. She has focused on women’s roles in the movement for the past 15 years. Robertson met with Deschanel at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, where a variety of mid-19th century documents related to Deschanel’s ancestors are stored. Robertson said, “It was an honor to conduct research for this program. With so many historians available, I feel fortunate to have been selected.” Robertson has authored four books, including Betsy Mix Cowles: Champion of Equality, which was published in 2013.

Interning at the Olympics Eighteen Bradley students earned prestigious internships with NBC for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Six students traveled to Sochi to work at the Games, while the remaining 12 worked behind-the-scenes production jobs at the NBC Sports studios in Stamford, Conn. This year marked the second time Bradley students interned for NBC’s Olympics coverage. Ten Bradley students interned with the broadcasting company during the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
Dr. Paul Gullifor, the Henry Means Pindell Endowed Chair in Communication, said NBC not only hired more Bradley students for the Winter Games, but the network selected fewer interns overall for its production team. “I am thrilled 18 were selected,” he said. “Not only did our number of interns increase, our total share did, as well.”

Also shown poolside is Dr. In Soo Ahn, chair of the electrical and computer engineering department.
Bradley’s chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, the international honorary organization for financial information students and professionals, was named one of 12 Gold Chapters in the world last August. The award, based on accomplishments and activities throughout the year, was presented at the international organization’s annual meeting in Anaheim, Calif. The honor is the highest a chapter can earn and the fourth such award for Bradley in the last five years. Chapter adviser Dr. Simon Petravick, department chairman and professor of accounting, also received his second Outstanding Faculty Adviser Award. After winning a regional competition earlier in the year to qualify, the Bradley group took part in the national finals of Beta Alpha Psi’s Best Practices competition. The students presented on chapter operations and participated in professional development events at the annual meeting. They joined 1,200 other financial information students
for a community service day focused on literacy. Beta Alpha Psi has more than 300 university and college chapters worldwide. Bradley’s chapter has about 30 students and is open to junior, senior, and graduate accounting majors who meet grade point requirements.
Autonomous Boat Cited for Technical Superiority Electrical and computer engineering majors Steve Blass and Zack Knoll entered the 2013 International RoboBoat Competition in Virginia Beach, Va., with great anticipation. They had worked tirelessly on their senior capstone project: a battery-powered autonomous surface vehicle (ASV). Blass programmed the basic shell or architecture that drove the main control device while Knoll focused on hardware fabrication and wrote substantial portions of the final software.
Boat, Beta Alpha Psi: Duane Zehr
A World-Class Gold Chapter
They were assisted by fellow electrical engineering majors Bradley Lan and Dan VanDeWater. The team tried to anticipate every potential problem and programmed the boat’s onboard computer with all the necessary fail-safe commands. The competition included an obstacle course that, once successfully navigated, advanced a team to five difficult challenge stations. “Team Bradley was the only team to successfully compete in three of these challenges during the week,” said alumnus Nick Schmidt, assistant lab director at Bradley. The event’s criteria involved 13 factors, such as the boat must be buoyant for at least 30 minutes and cannot send or receive instruction while in the autonomous mode. Bradley’s wood and plastic vehicle fared well in the qualifying run and appeared to be a strong contender. However, when a buoy drifted from its intended location and was undetected by the boat’s camera, the Bradley boat switched to challenge mode, headed for the correct GPS coordinate, and became stuck on a rope. While Team Bradley lost, the competition’s judges were so impressed by the group’s technical achievement and high performance that they gave an unprecedented fifth-place award. Schmidt said, “They produced a technically sound boat at a fraction of the cost of some of the other teams from highly competitive schools.”
Grants and External Funding During the fiscal year 2012â€“13, Bradley faculty and staff were awarded more than $2.9 million in grants and contracts from government agencies, nonprofit organizations, private foundations, corporate partners and other sources.

The Future of Regenerative Medicine Is Now By CLARA MILES Photography by Duane Zehr
While many researchers spend their entire careers hoping to achieve just one life-altering breakthrough, Dr. Craig Cady, associate professor of biology at Bradley, contributed to two medical advances in one year.

UNDERSTANDING iPS CELLS Like embryonic stem cells, iPS cells are capable of becoming any cell in the body, allowing scientists to avoid the ethical issues traditionally associated with embryonic stem cell research because iPS cells are made from adult cells. And, because an adultâ€™s own cells could be used to generate iPS cells, an individual could have new cells made without the risk of tissue rejection.

FIGHTING PARKINSON’S Dr. Craig Cady heavily focuses on Parkinson’s disease research in addition to heart disease. In fact, his student research assistants plan to try differentiating iPS cells into dopaminergic neurons. Since patients with Parkinson’s have a lack of dopamine in their brains, the creation of dopamine-producing neurons would be the first step toward finding a treatment — or possibly a cure — for the devastating movement disorder.

InPrint Religion and the Body Dr. Robert C. Fuller, Caterpillar Professor of Religious Studies. (2013). The body of faith: A biological history of religion in America. Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press. As the first new work to appear in the Chicago History of America series in decades, The body of faith brings a crucial new perspective to the study of American religion. In the book’s preface, Fuller details his principal argument that “new information about the human body can enrich historical description and sharpen historical explanation.” Referencing some of the body’s genetically evolved systems — pain responses, sexual passion, and emotions like shame and fear — Fuller builds the case for looking beyond traditional postmodern views focused on cultural constructs to gain insight into how human thought and experiences shape our relationships with nature, society and God. He later makes the connection between the biological and cultural for readers: “The goal of inquiry is to explain complex expressions of human thought, feeling and behavior. The richest historical narratives must recognize that human beings are at once biological and cultural. Slighting either impoverishes our understanding of why we think and feel as we do.” Although Fuller’s approach challenges long-held beliefs about American religious life, he does not ask readers to simply replace traditional methods with his. Instead, he suggests blending them for a more comprehensive and accurate picture. According to Amanda Porterfield, author of Conceived in doubt: Religion and politics in the new American nation, “Fuller’s even-handed treatment of scientific explanation complements his mastery of historical sources in a forceful testament to religion’s importance in American life.” A faculty member at Bradley since 1978, Fuller has written numerous articles and more than a dozen books, including five published by the Oxford University Press. He is considered one of the top authorities on American religious thought and regularly serves as a resource to the news media.

challenges conventional views of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke as well as the Acts of the Apostles. He reads the works not only against their Jewish “background” but also as early Jewish literature. In doing so, he questions Luke-Acts traditional classification as a “Greek” or Gentile-Christian text and claims that Luke, who is normally seen as a Gentile, was a Jewish author. To support his assertions, Oliver’s historical investigation explores the question of Torah praxis in each book, citing evidence that suggests several ritualistic Jewish practices remained fixtures in the Jesus movement and that Jewish followers of Jesus played key roles in forming the ekklesia well into the first century CE.

In Print A Subconscious Debate Dr. Kevin Stein, Caterpillar Professor of English and the Illinois Poet Laureate. (2013). Wrestling Li Po for the remote. Chicago, IL: Fifth Star Press. In his latest collection of poetry, Wrestling Li Po for the remote, Stein juxtaposes ancient Chinese poet Li Po’s quest for lyrical detachment against his own urge for communal engagement. “It’s a lovely idea, getting away from the self,” Stein has noted. “But I think it’s equally important to be grounded among your brothers and sisters.” The result of this opposition is a refreshing examination of modern America’s skewed notions of social and aesthetic value. Touching on subjects as varied as night shift factory workers, guitarist Les Paul, toilet paper, and league bowlers, Stein brings to his poems both empathy and an astute eye for cultural foibles. Said to pull no punches, the compilation poses fundamental questions of self and art in the modern era.

In Print Study Guide for Future Teachers Dr. D. Antonio Cantù, professor and chair of teacher education; Dr. Patricia M. Nugent, associate professor of teacher education; & Dr. Sherrie C. Pardieck, associate professor of teacher education. (2014). ILTS test of academic proficiency (TAP). Piscataway, NJ: Research & Education Association. Before individuals may be licensed to teach in Illinois, they must pass several content-area tests, including the Illinois Licensure Testing System (ILTS) Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP). To help prospective educators pass the TAP, Cantù, Nugent, and Pardieck developed ILTS test of academic proficiency to serve as a complete study package. The book includes an extensive examination of each of the specific competency components — reading comprehension, language arts, mathematics, and writing — that are covered on the four subtests. It also features online diagnostic tools and full-length practice tests with timed formats, instant scoring, and feedback to help pinpoint strengths and weaknesses, as well as detailed explanations of the answers. Because the authors are Illinois teacher educators, they possess a unique appreciation for the importance of succeeding on the exam. For this reason, they designed their study program to guide any user toward building the requisite fundamental knowledge and understanding necessary to prepare for and excel on the TAP, a fact that is explained in the introduction: “What’s best for you depends on how much time you have to study and how comfortable you are with the subject matter. Our book has a plan that you can customize to fit both your lifestyle and study style.”

Building on their previous work, Finson and Pedersen define the meaning of visual data as it relates specifically to science education in Visual data and their use in science education. Containing contributions from individuals actively researching and teaching with visual data, the book examines brain function associated with the processing of visual data as well as conceptual learning and change. It also addresses the use of visual data in science classrooms from elementary to college. Pedersen, J. E., Dr. Kevin D.

Going back for our future: Carrying forward the spirit of pioneers of science education. Charlotte, NC: Information Age Publishing. Today’s science teachers owe a debt to the educators who came before them — who shaped and reshaped the face of science education. The new Pioneers of Science Education series strives to recognize those trailblazers beginning with its first volume, Going back for our future. Explained as “an attempt to capture and record memories from the pioneers themselves or from those who worked closely with them,” the book recognizes both well- and lesser-known pioneers who held significant roles as mentors and teachers. It also reveals the extensive network connecting these individuals and how it fostered their development then and continues to support educators now.

and windows of the original exterior affect 90 percent of spaces 2 Auto-controlled interior lighting
3 A controlled HVAC system, heat
recovery wheel, and chilled beam technology with CO2 sensors add cooling by monitoring carbon dioxide levels in the building
4 Water use is reduced by more than
35 percent 5 A rapidly renewable resource, bamboo
plants adorn the building’s walls
