Message from the Chair

Greetings! I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you, our alumni, and to provide you with a brief update of recent goings on in the Geology/Geography Department. There have been many changes to report since our last newsletter. Dr. John Stimac has moved on to become Dean of the Honors College, and I have taken his place as Chair of Geology/Geography. John continues to teach classes for us in the department. Drs. Jim Stratton and Vince Gutowski retired in May and August, respectively, though they continue to work on projects locally. We also welcomed our newest faculty member, Jim Riley, who will teach geomorphology, field methods, surface water and natural hazards. Jim comes to us from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In short, it has been a busy year in the department as you will find as you continue perusing this newsletter.

I would like to extend an invitation to attend our Homecoming festivities this year. Our department will help coordinate the College of Sciences tent at Tent City (this takes place before the football game), so please stop by for a hot dog and a chance to catch up with several of our faculty. If attending Homecoming is not in your plans, we hope that you will arrange to visit us next time you are in the neighborhood. We will show you around so you can see first-hand the changes in the department and meet the faculty and students. If you have questions about the department or would like to make a contribution to our future success, I can be contacted by phone (217-581-2626) or by e-mail: mwcornebise@eiu.edu.

Best wishes!

Mike Cornebise
