Dr. Chisholm is committed to the concept of a Christian liberal arts education (especially since he did not receive one as an undergraduate). Though he did not attend SWU as a student, Chisholm wishes he had graduated from here because he loves the community, the area, the people and the sense of mission. Chisholm has publications in journals such as Mississippi Folklife, The South Carolina Review, Connecticut Review, Mallorn: The Journal of the J.R.R. Tolkien Society, and The Mississippi Encyclopedia. He is a frequent contributor to Intercollegiate Review, and he has published two photo essay books with Arcadia Publishing's series Images of America. Chisholm has received awards for his teaching in the classroom, including the Exemplary Teacher Award from the United Methodist Board of Higher Education and the William Winter Scholar Award from the Mississippi Humanities Council.
He lives near SWU with his wife and two daughters.
