Former Monitor Editor Joins Mass Comm Ranks

Former Monitor Editor Joins Mass Comm RanksPaul Van Slambrouck, Principia’s newest addition to the mass communication department, knows all about the value of hard work and humility.

“One thing you learn very early on is that you don’t have all the answers, and if you come from a place of thinking you’re supposed to, you probably won’t be a very good journalist.”

Fond Farewell for Faculty, Staff

Principia College is blessed with many wonderful faculty and staff that make the campus run smoothly. A few of these employees are retiring at the end of this quarter, including the library archivist and chair of the Cultural Properties Committee, Jane Pfeifer; Registrar Mary Collins; Sara Rockabrand of the Music department; and Student Activities Director Yvonne Quinlan-Pierce.

Faculty Positions in Flux

Each available job listing is assigned to a different search committee, which often includes the unit head, an instructor within the same department, and a faculty member from a different department.

Mass Comm Manages

The college put all forces into play to find substitute professors. The administration contacted a wide range of potential professors, from former faculty to Christian Science Monitor Editor John Yemma. Three current faculty and staff members came forward to fill the voids.
