Welcome to my website. In my role as an academic advisor I work with students in developing and employing an academic plan of study wirth an interdisciplinary approach exploring as many disciplines in the arts and scienes as possible. As a professor teaching first year seminars my students discover their academic interests, strengths, talents and gifts. They have a spirit of inquiry, making connections among the various disciplines of the core curriculum and relating this to their majors and programs of study. The First Year Seminar prepares students for the college experience emphasizing critical thinking, research, and writing across the curriculum.
