On the Road Again

Dr. Andrea Greenbaum, professor of English, was a speaker in April at the Conference on College Composition and Communication's annual convention in Atlanta. Greenbaum's lecture was titled, "It's a Bird … It's a Plane … It's a Jew! An Exploration of Jewish Ethnicity and Rhetorical Practice in the Graphic Novel."

The annual convention attracts faculty members from around the world who gather to hear award-winning keynote speakers, attend presentations on the latest innovations in education, and network to gain knowledge of best practices in the field.

Dr. David M. Kopp, associate professor and chair of the Organizational Learning and Human Resource Development Department in the Adrian Dominican School of Education, recently traveled to the Balkans to lecture at two universities and present at an international conference in Skopje, Macedonia.

Kopp and doctoral candidate Irena Nikolovska presented their paper, "Organizational Storytelling as a Crisis Management tool," at the International Conference on The Challenges to Economic Theory and Policy in the Aftermath of the Global Economic Crisis at Ss. Cyril and Methodius University. Following the conference, Kopp lectured at Ss. Cyril and FOM University, Macedonia's largest public and private universities.
