As the new semester begins on Monday, a fond farewell to the best chair I have ever known in Ian Lising! He isn't going too far people so not to panic! However, we are very lucky in this announcement. In a sudden scramble to cover Ian's classes, I am very honored and excited to welcome to the spring semester, as an adjunct professor, teaching public speaking, the amazing Lissa Lising! I feel blessed to keep a Lising in our department and thank her very very much for helping out this semester! Here's to a great 2016 spring semester Kristine, Michaeline, Thomas, Rachael, and Lissa!
