It’s the last day of the semester, and the end of my 10th year of teaching and administering at Webster University.
I’ve now been a university professor (full-time) for 19 years.
How will I mark the day? A bit of office cleaning in the morning. A council of chairs luncheon. A faculty meeting, then sessions with all of our sophomore candidates to announce the results of their barrier exams. Then the honors convocation for fine arts students. And the commencement banquet to receive my Messing Award.
I’m a suit all day!
Here’s a photo from my first week on the job:
