Dr. Alana Kozlowski

Congratulations to Dr. Alana Kozlowski. Her research will be profiled in the 2016 issue of Mind’s Eye (released in September). Her work is currently being featured on Missouri State’s research page and on the Mind’s Eye blog.

However, I began to question whether having a shared social experience with or without words may be equally important.

We are so proud of all of our departmental faculty. Your research continues to be a point of pride for the university, and it truly touches the community.
