This year has been filled with a lot of ups and downs as we’ve sought to fill two faculty positions for the coming year. (During spring conference season, I had some variation of the conversation “so how does it feel to be the sole continuing member…” about 4000 times) But never fear, it’s now public that the UMD Student Affairs concentration will be welcoming Assoc. (yes with tenure!) Professor Kim Griffin and Asst Professor Michelle Espino to the family. Needless to say, we’re thrilled and excited to build on the legacy of our program and chart new waters as a unit. [cue: inspirational music]
i have new colleagues!
