2022-23 message from the Chair, Dr. Diane Burns


Hello to our Esteemed Alumni!

One more year has come and gone, although much has changed in that time and is going to change soon….our President, David Glassman, steps down from his post at the end of this academic year, and a presidential search is commencing to find our next campus leader.  I am quite interested as to who will be chosen, as the new President should be with us for many years to come.  I, as well, will be stepping down as Chair at the end of this academic year and returning to teaching full time.  While it is hard to imagine that 5.5 years have already passed since I took on this role, thinking back on all that has transpired puts it back into perspective.  During my time here, we have had to say goodbye to many wonderful individuals such as Dalias Price, Alan Baharlou and Jim Stratton.  We also have had great successes, with endeavors such as the Articulation Agreement partnerships with IL community colleges sending students to EIU that we may not have attracted in the past.  It has, however, been one of my most rewarding efforts to be more involved with you, our wonderful alumni.  This has resulted in internship opportunities for our students, professional talks in our colloquium series and just getting to better know the quality people who have passed through these hallways.  It has been a real pleasure, and I thank you for all that you have done on behalf of our students, faculty and department.

I wish all of you the best – if you are in town, come visit us at the CLAS tent for Homecoming!
