About This Section
This section of the website contains information regarding the members of this department—from faculty and instructors to administration and staff.
This directory contains contact information for all members of our department except graduate students. Clicking on a name will give you more information about that person if it is available.
Faculty are noted with the profile icon and faculty profiles will contain extensive information for our faculty members including a faculty member's research interests, departmental areas of study, and publications.
The faculty section provides further information regarding our faculty including sub-groupings by graduate and MFA faculty, faculty homepages, and recent publications. The staff, administration, lecturer, and GSI sections provide for a quick display of members belonging to each group. And finally, the graduate student directory lists all of our graduate students with links to student profiles. The graduate student directory is for internal use only and requires a user login.
NOTE: In addition to using the search features throughout this section you can also use the main site search option at the top of the page. Using the "people" partition will limit your search to information found only in this section.
