Phil Watts and Randall Jensen (HPER) co-authored a paper titled "Physiological responses in rock climbing with repeated ascents over a 10-week period." The article was also co-written by Vanesa España Romero, who spent the winter of 2010 in Marquette doing collaborative research with Watts.

Joe Lubig (Education) wrote a book titled Maltese in Michigan, which was published last month by the Michigan State University Press. According to his description, the book "depicts the struggles and accomplishments of a singular culture, an immigrant narrative at once recognizable and enigmatic. Without realizing it, most Americans are probably familiar with the Maltese people through the cross displayed by firefighters, which bears a strong similarity in design and meaning to the one used by the Knights of Malta. The noble qualities embodied by the Maltese Cross are reflected in the pride and accomplishments of Maltese immigrants in Michigan, a small but vibrant ethnic group. Rooted in the post-World War II experiences of the 20th century, the Maltese established themselves in the city of Detroit, and thrived due to a strong work ethic and Catholic faith, while maintaining a strong central identity. This volume is a tribute to the Maltese of Michigan and all who have begun anew in an unfamiliar land and culture.:
