I served as the course and program coordinator for sociology and philosophy and was responsible for developing several articulation and transfer agreements with area universities for our baccalaureate students to continue to graduate school. I was among the first on the campus to teach online and introduced a number of educational technologies into my classroom, ie interactive personal response.

I progressed through academic rank without question from an Adjunct Instructor to Term Instructor to Instructor to Assistant Professor.
