IUP and Community Service


The doctoral program in Literature and Criticism provides extensive mentoring for 1st and 2nd year TAs. I have coordinated the mentoring program since Fall of 2012

ACPAC Technology Vision Committee

I have been active in ACPAC (Academic Computing Policy Advisory Committee) for a decade, previously chairing the Emerging Technology Sub-Committee. This grouped helped to bring blogging to IUP. In Summer 2014, I helped to reorganize the ACPAC sub-committee structure and now co-chair the standing Vision subcommittee with Dr. Mike Powers. We have a full agenda for the upcoming year

IUP Sailing Club

Founder and faculty advisor, I enjoy spending time with members of the Sailing Club at Yellow Creek State Park whenever possible. My service here is complimented by community involvement as chair of the non-profit Friends of Yellow Creek and volunteering for the board of the Moraine Sailing Club
