About Department Notes

Headshot of Doug DockeryAs Acting Chair, one of my challenges is keeping our faculty, staff, students, and friends informed of the many things we do and accomplish. Our website and social media channels are key components of Department communication.

The quarterly Department Notes are an attempt to personalize communication efforts. I try to touch upon topics that are important but might not be of the variety that reaches all of you by other means.

I also like to let you know what I, as Acting Chair, am doing. Sometimes I touch upon administrative issues, sometimes personal research or travel, and other times things I think are of general interest. I hope you find my notes informative and, at times, entertaining! Your comments and feedback are always welcome.
