The 2024 edition of Endeavors, TCU鈥檚 research magazine, is live, giving a glimpse into the array of critical research underway on campus.  

鈥淭he idea list for each year鈥檚鈥Endeavors鈥 keeps getting longer, which speaks to the exponential evolution of research culture at TCU,鈥 said editor Caroline Collier. 鈥淎s always, all of this work has a uniquely TCU feel, no matter the home discipline.鈥  

The cover story is about a research cluster in the Harris College of Nursing & Health Sciences.  

鈥淭his cluster was formed to address all manner of health care disparities, from how Somali mothers experience childbirth in the U.S. to the racial inequities in kidney disease,鈥 Collier said. 鈥淭he cover of the magazine features a beautiful photo of Dr. Angela Njenga, an assistant professor of nursing. If a picture can tell 1,000 words, this shot is all about how real people are suffering from unequal health care, but that together, the scholars of TCU are on the case.鈥 

Also in this issue of Endeavors

  • The true story about how Tricia Jenkins, professor of film, television and digital media, turned her experience of growing up in a cult into a blockbuster podcast. 
  • The mysterious end pages discovered in a forgotten Jewish text in the special collections of the Mary Couts Burnett Library. Ariel Feldman, the Rosalyn and Manny Rosenthal Professor of Jewish Studies, followed the trail and was able to solve the mystery of the origin of this scribble from the past. 
  • A feature on geology professor John Holbrook鈥檚 student-centered work that helps explain the cause of the Palo Duro Canyon鈥檚 unique rock outcroppings 鈥 and why the fossil record inside those rocks is one of a kind on earth. 
  • Mariachi Sangre Royal, TCU鈥檚 official mariachi group, and its affiliated music faculty are teaching future educators how to pass the traditional Mexican music on to the next generation. 

鈥淭he stories in this issue highlight the broad impact our faculty, staff and students make in business, health care, liberal and fine arts, and science and technology,鈥 said Floyd Wormley Jr., interim provost, vice provost for research and dean of graduate studies. 鈥淎s always, I encourage reading this magazine from cover to cover to understand the remarkable work that defines TCU as a鈥痺orld-class, values-centered university.鈥
