“Dr. Hogan has excelled in his work as a professor and theological/reference librarian,” said Dr. Michael Cogdill, dean of the Campbell Divinity School. “Since he has come to Campbell, the Carrie Rich Library now lends out more books in the theological area than are received. As an instructor, he has helped students in the conduct stronger theological research, thus strengthening the teaching of the entire Divinity School faculty.”
