Hello again, everybody. The last six months have been busy and eventful, but things are settling down enough now for me to resume writing in this space.
The major update in my life is that I am now an Assistant Professor of Leadership and Policy at Niagara University (just up the road from the eponymous falls). I'm excited to work with their new PhD program in Leadership and Policy, and I'm particularly excited to work at a college with such a deep commitment to serving the community -- especially the poor and the oppressed. The city of Niagara Falls has fallen on hard times, and the University's tireless work to help revitalize the community is one of the major reasons that it's among only 24 schools in the country to be recognized as a "Best College" for service learning.
(And it doesn't hurt that the school consistently appears on the honor roll of The Chronicle of Higher Education's "Great Colleges to Work For".)
Anyway, I have a number of great posts in store for you as I face new challenges and embrace new opportunities. I hope you'll come along for the ride.
update: we, once again, were named as one of 27 schools with exemplary programs in service learning
