St. Edward’s University faculty let us peek inside their offices.

Just as libraries are becoming much more than book repositories, faculty offices are more than places to display diplomas and textbooks. As a top liberal arts university, the faculty libraries at St. Edward’s are creative reflections of the people who inhabit them. Some are filled with tidily alphabetized books, others are overflowing with papers and burgeoning bookshelves, and a few have hardly any books. But all are interesting.
Here we bring you an inside look at eight noteworthy faculty offices on the hilltop — and a glimpse into the compelling people who occupy them.
