Dr. Maness is Oxford Fellow at Harris Manchester College
Dr. Don Maness, associate dean, Education, was an Oxford Fellow at the Harris Manchester College Summer Research Institute at Oxford University. Twenty-five fellows from a dozen U.S. universities took part in the week-long institute. The fellows' disciplines included medicine, law, the humanities and social sciences, and education. Fellows had access to all Oxford libraries, including the 12-million-book Bodleian Library, with its large collection of rare volumes. Fellows' research plans, which included a focused reading regimen, were supported by a Harris Manchester College librarian. The major emphasis of Maness' research was the culture and climate of U.S. higher education, based on his research and experiences.
